Eight million gallons of water had to be drained from a reservoir in Oregon after a man urinated in it.

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.
Health experts said the incident would not have caused any harm to people in the city of Portland, who are supplied with drinking water from the reservoir.
They said the average human bladder holds only six to eight ounces, and the urine would have been vastly diluted.
But David Shaff, an administrator at the Portland Water Bureau, defended the decision to empty the lake.
"There are people who will say it's an over reaction. I don't think so. I think what you have to deal with here is the 'yuck' factor," he said.
"I can imagine how many people would be saying 'I made orange juice with that water this morning.' "Do you want to drink pee? Most people are going to be pretty damn squeamish about that."

Really? And Bird don't fly over head and take a dump in it? This is one of the biggest wastes of money I have ever seen. My god if I was a tax payer there I would be jacked.

What a waste of money. The officials are more at fault here than the guy who pissed in the lake.

Whats to stop him from Peeing in it again when its refilled.

Maybe they should worry less about the water when its in the resevoir and develop a system that filters out the pee and other contaminants from the water before it goes to homes.

That 30k would probably go a long way in manufacturing or purchasing a filtration system.
