The LA Times is reporting that Silver Lake reservoir needs to be drained - yes, in its entirety - due to a carcinogen found in that water that was created through chemical reactions caused by the evil Sun. Curse you, Sun! The water from the reservoir may have to be washed down the LA River into the ocean, where fish will get cancer, but nobody seems to care. The Elysian Reservoir has also been contaminated and will need to be drained as well, but that water may be used to water the hills.
