Sweet goodness, this rocks! Tossing 400,000 plastic black Caviar like balls into a reservoir with 3 million to follow in an attempt to shade off the reservoirs exposed water from sunlight for the next 4-5 years.
“The water needs to be shaded because when sunlight mixes with the bromide and chlorine in Ivanhoe’s water, the carcinogen bromate forms, said Pankaj Parekh, DWP’s director for water quality compliance. Bromide is naturally present in groundwater and chlorine is used to kill bacteria, he said, but sunlight is the final ingredient in the potentially harmful mix.”
Reminds me of the beautiful Sony Bravia Bouncing balls commercial. I want to by a pool of spheres now!
Tons of fun pics after the jump.

How do ya open this bag??
If I were there, I’d be in that exact same position taking pics and probably falling backwards rolling down with the rest of the balls laughing out loud.
I love this blog. You rock!
Haha, the best part is that reservoir (and the whole neighborhood in fact) is called Silver Lake. Hmm, what are they going to call it now? “Black Plastic Ball Lake”?!
Why don’t they just stop adding chlorine to the water instead of further polluting the water by the addition of tons of plastic?
yahaha..balls lake! risd represent =)
Hi Tango! Thanks a ton for the help earlier! I finally got the post up. Completely awesome post, and I was shocked to see a real-world large-scale example of atomic stacking the size of a lake! 🙂
