In what seems like a huge overreaction, the City of Portland, Ore., is draining a 50-million gallon water reservoir because a teen hopped a fence and peed into it, The Oregonian reported.

That's right. Fifty million gallons of water are now completely useless because of a couple ounces of pee.

Doesn't that seem ridiculous?

Now, this is an open-air reservoir. So, it's safe to assume that it's already a little contaminated with bird crap and other junk that just happens to make it's way into the water.

So, why are they freaking out over a little pee pee?

It doesn't make sense, especially when considering the same thing happened nearly three years ago.
