(Scroll down for video) A reservoir manager in California, who was caught urinating into drinking water, faces up to five days suspension for his disgusting act, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission said.

Spokesperson Tyrone Jue said on Monday, that they received complaints that Martin Sanchez had urinated into the Priest Reservoir located near Sierra Nevada early last month.

He was seen urinating into the reservoir several times, according to witnesses.

The reservoir had been drained for maintenance, and officials said that the public health was not in danger. The reservoir supplies drinking water to 2.5 million people.

Sanchez, who earns $111,000 a year, was in line for a promotion before the incident. Now, he faces a maximum penalty of 5 days suspension without pay.
