    News report at noon. Seems like they should have told us about this on the 20th.

    Well I got a question. How does a restaurant with an Ice machine boil their water prior to it being used in the machine. Since those Ice machines are directly plumbed?

    Not to mention the built in Ice machines in Motels, Hotels and your Kitchen Fridge? The Commercial Ice makers (this is memorial weekend after all think 7-11 might be selling a little Ice)

    they can't, ice must be dumped and lines flushed after the alert is over. even 5 micron filters won't trap crap!

    I dumped all my ice at my hotel and we dumped all of our ice in our restaurants too. Then I went to the store and hauled truckloads of bagged ice into the building.

    All the BullSh*t from the County and from Portland City Hall must have made it into the reservoirs.

    That just the point stay out of Portlands Anti Gun Zone eatery complex and you wont have to shoot someone for trying to kill you with E-Coli.

    Keep in mind there is not much in the way of medical treatment for these types of illness.

    How about we boil some oil and get on top of the Hill and do what they did in ancient times. Shame the water rates approval just happened. Wonder why?

    Scare tactics here ... In my opinion.
    What better way to beat the drum of more funds for more protections against our enemies?
    Nature and Hippies in this case. I am going to the tap and get some more. I figure that I have gulped down 3 glns minimum since the 20th anyway.

    Next they will have us all flushing the system of "bad water" by running our taps for 24 hours or so.

    That works unless the ICE came from the Portland Water Supply and was made since the 20th when this was first noticed.

    I'm sure nobody considered that...

    The incident just helps to prove my theory that the areas surrounding Portland are sorta like the rim of a toilet bowl and Portland is the sloshy brown part.
