Last I heard, they go 1 & 2 also. Must not matter or effect taste.

What about Acid Rain, leave with junk on them, bugs etc etc etc.

Something isn't adding up here.


The ducks are what caused the recent e. coli outbreak. Im certainly not saying it adds up, im just pointing out that there are no fish or anything of that nature in the reservoir.

Fish do worse than pee in it.
Fish crap is also a lot less worse than some of stuff in that water. And human piss is like 99% water or something anyway. So I wonder what percentage of it was actually this guys piss?

* 0.0000000000001% of the water volume consists of this guys urine.
* 0.0000000000008% is other people urine.
* 0.00000003% is fish urine and fecal matter.
* 0.000006% is miscellaneous stuff you don't even want to know about.


Again, no fish in this man-made reservoir.

this stinks of an excuse to drain the reservoir - [shocked voice] "geez, looky what we found right here at the bottom!"


They're going to find a cement bottom. Thats about it. It was drained two years ago as well.

I was up there over the weekend-there is nothing visible in the reservoir.

The only time people do something is because of money (in a business). So the reason they drained this reservoir is because of making or losing money in some respect.

Now if they are draining it saying it's because some guy peed in it? It's a code word that actually means "some company or someone dumped a bunch of crap in it and we need to drain it and start over because it's bad water now".

Just guessing without knowing. I wonder where the dart will land?

Oh well if I am totally off mark that's ok. It doesn't really matter in the end does it?

I have seen several man made reservoirs in my lifetime, and every single one of them would have full sized fish appear out of nowhere within a few weeks of the major rain season starting.

Also large communities of frogs and turtles would sprout up.

But it was in the middle of the desert in a man-made pond. No one was stocking it either.

My theory is that there are eggs under the soil laying dormant for years until the time is right to get wet and hatch. I could be 100% wrong but it seems sort of reasonable. At least for the frogs and turtles, it may not explain the fish so well.

What an unbelievable reaction. Just think of the gallons of pee and tons of faeces from all the wild and domestic animals on the surrounding hills, Plus all the same from all the marine wildlife! Oh and the birds overhead, the rotting vegetation blah blah blah.

Moronic decision by idiots who know nothing of nature!

Anyway, here's the biggest yuck factor. Due to recycling the average Londoner consumes their own urine 7 times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wrong. Of course there are fish in the reservoir. It doesn't matter that it is man made, there are fish in it.

Fish are carried to man made bodies of water via bird droppings.

Actually migrating birds will land in one body of water and fish eggs attach to their webbed feet/feathers. And when they land in another body of water the tiny fish eggs float away.

The State regulates all waterways....draining a State waterway because somebody peed in it......hope the State punishes that fool.

He only did it because he wanted to Bill the kid a huge amount of money. Hope that kid has the brains to get a lawyer.

REALLY!?

HAHAHA

You know how many people pee in swimming pools and people STILL swim in it?

HAHA

what a joke!

I am sure that this is just a cover story. If they drained it, where did it go?

as for the pee contaminating the water ha ha . it is estimated that the water taken from the thames for conumers has on average been through 6 people. The only reason i can think of for draining a resevoir is if the nitrate levels have gone through the roof . it happened over here a few years back . tptb installed massive air stones to try and mix the existing water with water from the desalinartion plant. it would appear it that they are now draining the resevoir but into the network and other resevoirs. any large body of water will attract wildlife and bacteria did anybody notice the detritus floating in the resevoir?. as for the resevoir haveing a cement base i find it hard to believe , resevoirs make use of natural strata and rock formations , 300,0000 tons of water can and will damage a cement floor. the dam is the only man made part along with the pumping station

This isnt that type of reservoir. Too many of you are picturing a lake. Mt. Tabor isn't that. It is a group of small water holding pools. There are no fish in there, unless someone puts them in there.

Frogs are certainly a possibility, especially since Mt. Tabor is a forested park. We dont have many turtles in this part of Oregon.

There is no soil at the bottom of this reservoir. It is man-made, and cement. It looks like a large skateboarding area when empty. I have a few things going on today, but Ill try and get up there and nab a picture of the empty tank.

You are wrong. Just like I said in my last post. This is a cement-bottomed holding pool. There are no fish in there.

here is the factor nobody seems to get. Security. If a couple guys can go to the reservoir and drink a few beer and get within pissing distance of the exact water that people drink, what is to stop a terrorist from sneaking some form of poison in there? The stupid factor is off the charts. You store drinking water in tanks, like water towers and the like. That way they are enclosed and protected. I feel bad for the guy who pissed in it. he sounds like he is just scared as to what might happen to him. He admits doing it, and even said if he had a job, he would pay for it.

The city government need to re-think their whole process.

Obviously, just a cover story for some other reason. No way they drained that thing for the stated reason.

The news article in the OP got it wrong then. Big surprise.

The operation is costing the state's taxpayers $36,000 (£22,000) and was ordered after Joshua Seater, 21, was caught on a security camera relieving himself in the pristine lake.

8 million gallons does seem pretty small for a lake.

This seems to be a picture of the horribly polluted reservoir.

Agreed that it *could be a liability, but there are compelling reasons for maintaining/upgrading the open reservoirs as well.

This is the *pro position and gives some decent insight into the fight and note: open reservoir can be in compliance with Fed. mandates should the city decide to upgrade... also note the costs needed to build and maintain closed/buried reservoirs at this time... If it happens at all, the transition will be very slow...

www.friendsofreservoirs.org...


As Commissioner Saltzman said last July about LT2, "this is a regulation in search of a problem... we should continue to purse all alternative options beyond a large capital project."

Given the extensive scientific data in support of retaining Portland’s open reservoirs, the broad-based community support for retaining our open reservoirs, the exorbitant cost of burial ($403million, $800 million with debt service) and the new public health risks[5] associated with covered reservoirs, it is incumbent on the City to push back and push back hard.

So, obviously 1/3rd larger than this tank shown...thats alot of water...not sure what that is a picture of, but from the lake in question, ya, its not really that much.
