There should be no "P" in the "ool", guess that applies to the reservoir too.. Hope the animals know that..

Another example of people panicking because of the ick factor.....maybe they should look into the kitchen of their favorite restaurant instead??

I saw this and couldn't help but wonder if animals aren't doing the same thing. Bird's don't poop when they fly over water? Animals don't die near water or down in it? I bet they do. Bottled water companies suck up water from the same streams people upstream are urinating in and worse. Upstream dead animals end up in them as well.

They dumped all 38 million gallons. They don't filter/clean this water before sending it to homes?

Could they have tested this person to determine if he had something in his system that was of such a threat before dumping all that water?
Had you actually read the article you would know this water had already been treated. would you like this at your house?
