US city flushes 8m gallons of treated water down drain after man pees in reservoir

Eight million gallons of treated drinking water were flushed away in Portland, Oregon's biggest city, because a 21-year-old man was caught by a security camera urinating into the city's reservoir.

City officials said they didn't want to send residents water laced with urine. But health officials said the pee was so diluted it did not pose a risk.

Not to mention all the unspeakable things done in the water by the wildlife! That's why the water is treated in the first place.
