Hey, thanks.

I try... just thought that what he said could be useful for analysis here on a level or two.


The whole thing seems so strange to me.

Peace,

Wonder what they would do if someone dropped a little fluorescein dye in there reservoir.

8 million gallons would only need about 1/4 pound..

chemicaloli.net...
news.inthekoots.com...
www.invisibledust.com...

Someone
used a small amount one time to turn a creek green and thought it would only affect a half mile or so. No it turned over 35 miles of the creek bright green.

Every government agency had someone there trying to find out what was going on. Even a number of agencies i have never heard off.

He does realize that there will be like not even 1 pee molecule per liter of that water?
And besides, it has to get treated anyways. Animals #, reproduce, piss, puke, die, rot, and all sorts of other stuff in that water. And they are fretting over such little pee in such huge amount of water.

Man, this story is all over the news today.

Across the globe even.

Amazing what stories catch on.

And, it appears most of the stories have a picture of the actual area the water was contained in and not the ajoing lake.

I've got to scratch my head on this one. Wow! Did the article mention anything about the raccoon that was seen peeing in the shallows of the lake 50 yards from this guy? How about the wood duck that was seen dropping a deuce into the water right before landing.

It almost sounds like they used this guy peeing in the lake as an excuse to drain it for some other reason. Not conspiratorial or anything but maybe it was a way to get the money to do something they been wanting to do and used this incident as the sole reason.
It just strikes me odd why they would do such a stupid thing. How many could have thought that this was a good idea?

exactly what I thought when I read it as well....just an excuse to drain it..but why?

Some ducks that swim in it is about all.


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.



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


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


No, you are wrong. What does a cement bottom have to do with it? I know of at least three cement bottom reservoirs that people actually fish in (with success). You do not know what you are talking about.

Well I'm dumbfounded - really...

All that over a bit of wee. How old was the culprit exactly? Might only have been a dribble.

Urine is extremely dangerous for your health!!!
On the other hand fluoride and chlorine isn't! Ask how much fluoride and chlorine will be dumped into that water before it reaches the first water faucet!

Idiot government worker.
I agree fire his @ss

You are right. I live by it. I jog there daily. But I know nothing about it.


There are no fish in Mt. Tabor reservoir. To argue otherwise is stupid. It is a small holding pool. THERE ARE NO FISH.

Sad how badly people want to be right around here....even when they are, without a doubt, 100% wrong.

just imagine if they had found a few skeletons at the bottom. people would have been drinking the residue from decaying bodies. what the heck were these people thinking? talk about overkill!

but then again, south park comes to mind with the water park episode. maybe that would have been the final pee to break the camels back!

I've seen chemically laden swimming pools shutdown for a 24 hour "shock" in the event of a code brown. No draining of the pool is necessary



Urine is sterile as it leaves the body and in this case it was also rapidly diluted by the massive size of this reservoir.

Shame on the people of Oregon for allowing 8 million gallons of water to be wasted when there are drought fueled fires raging in AZ and Texas. Oregon, A land that is full of tree huggers and water conservationists. Posers!!

It wasnt the people of Oregon's choice to do this. Hardly fits to call us all posers.

The other thing that people do need to realize is that we are close to flood stages in parts of Oregon right now. Replacing the water isnt the issue.

Fair enough. Glad you're getting rain. Have you breached any levees yet? Was the reservoir in trouble due to the rain? Is there any outrage amongst the locals regarding this waste of water??

Still no reason to dump 8 million gallons for a little pee. In my area we are about to get slapped with sewer rates that will nearly double. We will be assessed based on area of hard surface run off that drains into the sewers. If i found my local water authority discharging 8 million gallons of water for someone peeing in the water I would be furious. I suppose if this guy was swimming while he was peeing this would not be an issue because no one could prove that he even peed in the water.

1)Portland is a valley. When we reach flood stage, its not the same as what is happening in middle america. Water levels simply rise.

2)We dont have the same type of levees as what is being breached elsewhere (and really, what does this have to do with anything?)

3)Yes, people are fairly upset about it, although they realize that it is not as big a deal as is being made.

4)I agree they shouldnt be dumping for this reason, but it isnt the huge deal you make it out to be.

5)I'm sorry about your sewer rates, but again, in portland, these things are not that rare.

If people want to have an issue here, the issue should be that the water supply is left uncovered, which leaves them to have to do this about every other year.

Quick little fact regarding these reservoirs.


The reservoirs are drained twice a year for cleaning, and workers have found animal carcasses, paint cans, construction material, fireworks debris and even the plastic bags people use to scoop up after their dogs, said David Shaff, administrator of the city water bureau.


Let's just hope they take the time to use this drainage as one of their 2 drains a year.

I'll let it go at that.
