It's a fantastic idea, so long as you don't drink the water!

Why would you have the filtration plant before the reservoir?

Chlorine causes cancer period. There is ways that are non toxic to perfect water and add the minerals and oxygen left. Plus they add cancer causing fluoride. Literally all city water is toxic, some short term, some long term.

I'm going to save you the 12 minutes. The balls are to prevent the water from being evaporated by the sun. Every kid learned about this in science class so I don't really know why someone would take the time to watch this video, finally clicked on it to stop it from coming up in my feed.

Dr. Mercola once again has masterfully written and staked his reputation on the ill health effects of bromide: https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/09/05/Another-Poison-Hiding-in-Your-Environment.aspx LA WAKE UP--BROMIDE SHOULD NOT BE IN YOUR WATER SUPPLY!!!!!!

"You could chew on it, it won't do any harm at all." I don't trust any of these corporate pricks, especially that guy.

I'm more concerned with the chemicals in this stuff. They test things on rats and then they test it on humans and then they call it a day. What they don't test is humans having it every day for 40+ years. It is no surprise cancer rates are soaring, and dementia, etc.
Even if it is harmful, for the 10 years disolving time so much water will pass through the reservoir that it will probably carry super small amounts of plastic, much smaller than the ones from bottles

My question is why are they driving a boat on a drinking water lake, the boat is putting gas in our water

Prevents BROMIDE from mixing with CHLORIDE that is a carcinogen. Hope that all of you in LA do not use TABLE SALT at home, have metal pipes that BROMIDE oxidizes, have hydroCHLORIC acid in your stomach or CHLORIDE in your blood levels, BECAUSE the mixture of BROMIDE and CHLORIDE is in their words, a carcinogen!!!!! That statement is hokey at best. Do your research LA, you are being slowly BROMINATED!!!!!

so why are you operating a dirth filthy gas engine / boat in the LA drinking supply?
Alex Miller
Alex Miller - 12 hours ago
these engines are not SO dirty and filthy, especially if it's an engine with air cooling system. And most of their waste is floating on the water and evaporating, so they can just use the water from the bottom of the reservoir.

its not that rare to see 96million of anything in the world... dirt particles, microbes, atoms, number of cells in the human body... basically you see it everyday: and same as here: they usually serve one shared purpose.

Why no white balls, they reflect sunlight and they will not accumulate heat?
Xennon52MetalMusicAndMore - 20 hours ago
1) They dont have white food grade material 2) This way it can absorb the light from the bottom of the reservoir, so *somewhat* less light
