PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Once again, Portland officials are preparing to flush millions of gallons of treated water because a young person urinated into a city reservoir.
Water Bureau Administrator David Shaff said 38 million gallons will be discarded because a 19-year-old was caught in the act on Wednesday.
As a general proposition, human urine is sterile.
UPDATE: A pal on FB wonders: “Where do these idiots think wild animals pee?” I guess that’s okay, though, because animal pee is natural.
