01-05-2005 MISSING WATER
NOTE: To date, I have no cases in my files where a UFO has been seen drawing water from a water tower, water tank or swimming pool. It would be speculative to suggest that a UFO drew water from these storage areas when no UFO was seen in the vicinity, and even when a UFO was seen, it would not necessarily imply that it was responsible for the loss of the water. However, given the rapid emptying of these large storage facilities, it is still worth recording these cases for possible future file use. (CF)

20,000 Liters of Water Vanish Mysteriously from "Australian" Water Tank in the Province of Córdoba, Argentina
On Tuesday, January 10 at 17:52 hours and by means of a phone call, Mr. Eduardo Virgilio Sangoni, calling from the town of Cańada de Luque near Totoral, northern Córdoba Province, indicated that on Thursday, January 5, 2005, nearly 20,000 liters of water had vanished overnight from an Australian water tank in a field belonging to Mr. Domingo Ordóńez, the caller's neighbor.
According to Sangoni’s statements, Mr. Ordóńez had checked said water supply the previous day and it was absolutely normal, being unable to explain how so many liters of water could vanish from one day to the next.
Interested in the UFO phenomenon, Mr. Sangoni reported to his neighbor's field to ascertain that there was no water seepage through any crack in the vessel's walls or bottom, but nothing abnormal was seen, thus discarding the possibility of a structural failure in the reservoir.
When asked if it could be natural evaporation due to the very high prevailing temperatures on domestic territory, Sangoni said that while temperatures in exces [sic] of 40 centigrade (105 F) had been reported in the region, it still would not account for the evaporation of such a massive amount of water, considering that when a minimum limit is reached, the pump replenishes whatever may have been consumed or what could eventually evaporate.
Sangoni informed C.O.R (Círculo Ovnilógico Riocuartense) that barely 10 centimeters of water were left in the bottom of the tank, that there was no turbidity in the water, and that no traces of humidity had been seen outside the tank.
The caller also noted that he had made a series of investigations among the few neighbors of the area (separated by 500 meters from each other) in order to corroborate that anyone might have seen the presence of luminous objects over the area. His research was fruitless, as no one was able to answer his questions.
Sangoni expressed his astonishment at this development, the first in the area, and when he learned that similar cases to those in La Pampa had occured [sic] in the province of Córdoba in less than 35 days, he considered the possibility that a similar phenomenon may have taken place in Cańada de Luque.
