*To the people who wants the answers quick instead of scrolling down thousands of pointless comments. They are doing this to cut down costs of reducing the algae problems since they were spending a lot of money on chlorine. Also, a myth debunked joke. Veritasium: it's rare to see 96,000,000 of anything. AutspieDrough: Well there's sand, cells, dirt, grass, dust, atoms, molecules, and a lot more so it's not rare at all.*

"the money we save on chemicals and evaporation will pay for half of the balls"...so you're not saving money...tax payers are now paying 50% more.

I admit, I only clicked to get this out of my recommendations. But I stayed and watched because I've been subbed to Veritasium for a while and generally like his videos. Now I hope YouTube will realise I caved in to their annoying insistence and get that thumbnail out of my face!
I do those cumbo to cumback
balls are black for a reason,
looked at my nuts*
Me: no wonder why its black..

Would be cool if white worked and it would help with reflecting sunlight and reducing warming somewhat

to save you the work of watching it ….in reservoirs black balls are used to stop sunlight converting bromide into poisonous bromates
and @5.51 after listening 20 times he said, 'to keep the wild foul off so they didn't get into jet engines' so if you failed to catch that there you are

In Seattle we have many open water reservoirs and I'm sure the same problem exists with carcinogens but of course no one is even talking about the issue or trying to solve it. The politicians are all too busy trying to figure out how to collect more taxes to spend on their pet projects.

Bromide is not harmless. One of the three BAD halogens. Effects the thyroid. Chlorine also a bad halogen, the other being fluoride. Think about it.

If not for the durability carbon black provides, the balls would be more efficient if they were white right?

How does the black carbon die help reduce the breakdown of the plastic via solar energy? Does it strengthen the bonds in the plastic?
Mad man
Mad man - 5 hours ago
Nope, its kinda like melanin in human skin. It absorbs the light, e.g. it transforms light photons into heat energy in safe manner, instead of letting photons hit chemical bonds in polymer structure that can break them down, similar to how melanin absorbs UV light so it doesnt penetrate deep into skin and cause sunburn/skin cancer.

Once again the private sector was ahead of Government but the big question is why treat the water and then store it in a open pond. Why not treat it and pump it to the consumer like the rest of the world.
