A 19-year-old man was caught on camera urinating in a reservoir that holds Ortland’s drinking water on Wednesday, according to city officials.

Since then, the city has been draining 38 million gallons of water from Reservoir 5 at Mount Tabor Park in southeast Ortland.

see what I did there?

  1. The enormous amount of dilution makes the city’s actions in draining the reservoir ridiculous. Unless, of course, if they believe in homeopathy!

  2. Homeopathy indeed! In any case, this is just plain nuts! How many birds, rabbits, squirrels, and such piss in the reservoir every day? Volume-wise this teen’s output is just a “piss in the bucket”!

  3. The city is actually Portland, Oregon:

    At least it rains so much there that the reservoir will be refilled before long.

  4. Who’s taking the piss?

  5. I see it but I don’t get it.

  6. There is no P in ortland

  7. Ah. Except there is.

  8. You should know that Portland has been involved in a long running fight over the open reservoirs. The city is replacing them with underground tanks, even though all science indicates that open reservoirs are really cleaner and safer. Teenagers and other idiots have been peeing in these reservoirs probably since they were created more than 100 years ago, but it has only become an issue since they city decided to change them.

    This is what happens when contractors take over your government.

    Portland Oregon is in a rain forest, but they pay more for water than Phoenix, Arizona!

    In the future fresh clean water will be more expensive than oil.
