Portland officials say a 19-year-old man was caught on camera urinating in a reservoir that holds the city’s drinking water.

Officials say a group of five teens were seen at Mount Tabor Park at about 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Two ended up leaving while three others stayed.  The 19-year-old was filmed urinating through the iron fence into the reservoir.

Minutes later, the two other men, ages 18 and 19, tried to climb the fence. Now the city must drain 38 million gallons of water from the park’s reservoir.

Police officers cited the three men.

Water quality test results are due back Thursday.
