...and so they dumped 8 million gallons of water

OK, so, I put this thread here, as I suppose it's health-related.

Would you still drink this water?

You probably ingest more urine from the water that goes up your nose at the public pool. Sure, the idea of this is icky, put it through your filter and enjoy.

I would have no problem at all drinking it. Let me make that clear. My issue is that 37 million litres of water had to be dumped!

Isn't that a little extreme?

Definitely. I wasn't referring to you, I meant the public who the water was for. Like they mentioned in the article, the water was already treated for fish and animal pee, and the urine is sterile anyway. I hope the person who made the decision to dump the water has his position reconsidered.

Oh yeah, I got what you meant. I just found it pretty baffling.

Given that local authorities and such have a habit of doing bizarre things where I am from, and God knows that American stories like this always make the news, what's it like where you are?

I notice you're in Canada. Do you have lunatics running the asylum there, too?
