    :cIn California, Millions of ‘Shade Balls’ Combat a Nagging Drought

    Facing a long-term water crisis, officials concerned with preserving a reservoir in Los Angeles hatched a plan: They would combat four years of drought with 96 million plastic balls.
    On Monday, Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles arrived at the 175-acre Los Angeles Reservoir to release the final installment of the project: 20,000 small black orbs that would float atop the water.
    The scene resembled something found at a playground — “You turned the reservoir into the world’s largest ball pit? #bestmayorever,” wrote one supporter on the mayor’s Facebook page — but the initiative has serious implications for the city’s water supply.

    So now the heat and sun will cause chemicals to emit off the balls and into the drinking water? Makes sense....................

    I have to keep doing this. Ball pits are germ farms, but SO much fun.
