Man sentenced for urinating in Portland's water supply

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (AP) -

A 23-year-old man who urinated into Portland's water supply last year has pleaded guilty to misuse of a reservoir and been sentenced to community service.

Joshua Seater must complete 24 hours of service at a food bank by Oct. 10. If he fails, he faces five days in jail.

The Colton resident and his attorney declined comment after Thursday's brief hearing in a downtown Portland courtroom.

A security camera caught Seater urinating into the Mount Tabor reservoir in June 2011.

The incident led the Portland Water Bureau to drain the 7.5 million-gallon reservoir at a cost of about $36,000.

Health officials said the urine posed little risk to the public.
