Billions of gallons of rainwater are wasted and drained into the ocean each year. Southern California has been in drought for years, yet the state wanted to spend billions on a stupid bullet train instead of building better water collection systems.

And after spending billions including leeching substantial amounts in federal assistance the bullet train went nowhere and the project was quietly dropped. Another leftie pipe dream. And now in the unusual wet season the dams are on the verge of breaking. Leftie priorities.

People use to drink this water—with no issues—except maybe 1%. And it’s subjective saying that the drinking water causes issues to this 1%. We pay out our backsides for this subjective epa regulation stuff. It’s all out of control, this is why our dollar doesn’t have no buying power any more.

Cost of balls: $1 for every 3 balls which equals around $32M.
Lifetime of balls: 10 years
Reasons for balls:
- Evaporation is reduced by 80-90%
- Bromate is carcinogenetic and is formed when bromine and chlorine are in direct sunlight
- Stops algae from forming so you need almost no chlorine to disinfect the water
- The balls are inert and cause no harmful side effects

In The Netherlands, tap water is save to drink. I am not used to drink bottled water, so seeing this feels somewhat weird to me. How save is the water from this reservoir to wash, bath, cook or even drink?
Side note: tap water in The Netherlands has the same or better quality than bottled water. Why? Its age is usually no more than 48 hours from groundwater to tap, whereas bottled water is often much older. Next to that bottled water is at least 125x as expensive than tap water: at least € 0.20 for a liter of bottled water or roughly € 1.50 for 1000 liter of tap water (depending on your yearly usage).

That's $32M dollars worth of balls - I think that is hard to justify that amount of money. How many people are dependent on this one reservoir? I guess if the balls last for ten years then that's $3.2M per year, and if there are 100,000 people need this water, then it's about $32 per year per capita. Yeah, ...still sounds like a bit - I will look at my water bill now, ...and wonder what the shade-ball component is...
