PORTLAND, Ore. -- Two people skinny dipping during a stretch of particularly hot weather nearly cost Portland millions of gallons of drinking water.
Two people were caught Saturday around 3 a.m. skinny dipping in a reservoir that provides most of Portland's drinking water, authorities said.
Portland Water Bureau officials said Ryan Langsdorf, 28, and Ashley Moyer, 23, were cited on trespassing charges after swimming in Mount Tabor Reservoir 6, reported television station KPTV in Portland.
Officials said the accused skinny dippers were found in a part of the reservoir that had been offline. Had it been in use at the time, the Water Bureau would have been forced to shut off the reservoir and consider dumping millions of gallons of water.
So... would it been okay had they been wearing bathing suits?
