    Why should we discard 50 million gallons of drinking water if someone peed into the reservoir?

    To drain the reservoir,  it will cost $100,000 which will have to be passed on to public.

    I couldn't believe this when I read the news story.  Obviously the local wildlife urinate and defecate in and near this water.  Draining the lake seems to be a poor decision in my opinion.

    Yes it is of course a poor idea. A big water body can never be pure. What if it happens again? Would they drain it once more?

    We shouldn't, maybe the company that sends that water out to the public is being cheap and not filtering it correctly.
