"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."

...no. "Yuck" does not merit a $36k operation.

Um,  What about deer pee?  Bear Pee?  Animal pee in general?  That administrator should be fired and fined.

What about fish and other aquatic critters in the lake? That is why the water is typically run through a filtration plant!

But...this is a magical reservoir, where animals don't do such uncouth things.

Sergeant Pete Simpson, of Portland Police, said: "It's really an unfortunate incident that probably could have been avoided if he had just chosen a bush."

As if nobody has ever heard of 'run-off'.

Edit:  Or bird poop.  If the flying rats can't be taught to hold it in when flying over my car, they can't be taught to hold it in over a reservoir.

Government Authority taking the piss out of residents again. Hardly news but typical over reaction

Yep...

They've got a bigger problem than one drunk man peeing in the reservoir if they can just shrug this off and say "The Filtration plant will get it"

They should have asked the towns people, drink water with possible traces of urine or front the 26k bill, which will mostly come from your taxes or hiked up water bill.

I would have drank the pee.

Agreed. If you want rational decisions, incentives are everything - make sure the benefits and costs are borne by the same parties.
