    What these California idiots didn't consider, is that plastic standing in sunlight, & heated water will emit microscopic polymer particles over time, & thus tainting the water, as is the "Pacific/Asian Garbage Circles" are doing...right now. This is what happens when stupid people vote for stupid people to run their world. Their tax $$ pays for 96 million gaw'damn balls, that will eventually poison their drinking water. Stupid kills...

    That seems very clever to start with but then you have plants living in the water that are gonna die and rot, and that's gonna be in the drinking water. Would ammonia or something start to form when the plants in the water die off?

    how to put massive ammounts of microplastics into your water. those shadeballs are rubbing on themselves producing ALOT of microplastics. right into your drinking water. good job.

    If the sunlight not enter into this water then growing microflora under the water which is beneficial for any living being and which could be no more in the water, thus leads a cause for lethal drinking water, No life under water means no life in the water. Who going to drink this have no normal life on this earth.. can any one thing about which food is non degradable, you and me are all made up of degradable Biomaterials, The truth is like this then Where is this food grade quality coming from the Hell.. O what a Stupidity, using Science to make videos to Fool common Human Civilians.. Bad Bad Bad this is very very Bad thoughtful idea for humankind..

    Any thing can reacts with sunlight and Black colour is more likely to observe sunlight in means of Heat and also the possibility is more reaction will Happen between this water and Dissolved Chemicals of the Balls in People Drinking water thus leads to Cancer of Human lungs kidney even Blood and brain.. so people Please be away from this Water.. Go for Harvesting Techniques of Rain water to increase under ground Land Water which is very pure and healthy drinking water than this type of treated Brominated, Chlorinated abnormal water.

Look it up, it's ALL Right there to be read in their written Agenda for Humanity. Any of you who don't bother to research the facts of this are just Stupid and Lazy and shouldn't have the Right to say a damn thing that refutes Any of it because your Stupidity Disqualifies you from doing so.

    These will blocked out sunlight from getting into the water and these will kill all the phytoplanktons which produce oxygen for the aquatic living organisms. They died and causes anaerobic bacteria (mostly toxic) to grow exponentially. Poor idea. So residents nearby will not contract cancer due to the carcinogens caused by the chemical reaction but will get sicken in other ways.

    The problem of the appearance of carcinogenic bromate in water is deliberately exaggerated. This process in reality is insignificant. This story is designed to camouflage the real reason for the huge amount of chopped plastic in the water. (The truth is somewhere else...) Thousands of tonnes of plastic in water in the form of a 4 inch ball is suitable for the fact that this way creates the maximum surface of the plastic that is in contact with water. Water can decompose everything, just give it enough time. The balls are in a black color in order to accelerate the degradation process of polyethylene on the heat of the sun. Polyethylene (HDPE) contains Desphenol-A (PPA). This chemical mimics Estrogen in the human body. Absorption is possible even through the skin. Further explanations are not needed. This is a great experiment. (In vivo)... LADWP has nothing to do with this. The plan came probably from a higher level... (The Administration, the Government, the gay lobby... who knows!!). It can easily happen that this method is adopted by other US cities. In that case, the only solution for US men will be to find some natural sources of clean water. It's a little complicated mission in dry California, but everything is possible. (Ps- Plastic bottle water is also contaminated. ) "I wear a plastic suit, and plastic is my food, maybe I'm plastic too" ... ;) .. Sad but true.^* Good luck to all... *(R.I.P. for a dead the bird in engine).

    Let's do some math... 96,000,000 x.33 cents each = $31,680,000. One of your questions should be who got the contract for those balls.
