That's right. 'Cause once you go black, you'll never go back.

Instead of wasting all that water flushing it, they should instead switch to the Cleveland Steamer and Golden Showers.

Where do people think their shiat goes anyways?
Example. Austin sits on the Colorado River. Water treatmeant plants pull water from the river, pump it to your house, you use it, then shiat in it. It then goes into the wastewater plant, gets your turds removed from it, then the water is put back into the river for the next town to pull out for them to drink. This is how it works, people.

Many of us have been drinking recycled piss for years. If your town draws water from a river, you do. Sewerage is treated and then released back into a river. Down stream, the next town pumps it out and filters/treats it and pumps it into your home. But not to worry, the water's just fine.

This.

The only reason we don't have the water treatment plants built in to the sewage treatment plants is because of public perception.

Actually the big chunks are removed from your drinking water and they end up in a bag of precious Dillo Dirt™. However, it's not all unicorn poop apparently.  The Toxic Avenger weeps. And is then consoled by the hot Troma chick.

Interesting comments at the end of TFA, if you click through to the MyFoxAustin article. This is being done already in parts of the USA.

CSB: My father (NASA Engineer) worked on the design for a similar system on the space shuttle. Back in the '80s. He told me then that we would all be using this system when we run out of cheap potable water.

Its "caked" sludge, which, yes is some biosolids, but there is also sand, grit, dirt from infiltration from broken pipes. The majority of your turd is actually eaten via aerobic digestion from bacteria in aeration basins, then thru secondary digesters. But whatever.. The point is people have no clue to the fact they are drinking water that has carried a turd. Many, many times. It gets filtered thru sand, then shot with chlorine, then you drink it.

Because of the lack of water, the town of Brownwood may tap into their wastewater by installing a system that cycles toilet water through a series of treatment plants and right back into the municipal water supply,


Would they put poop in your water? Brown would.

Is there anyplace in the world (that isn't doing research or a dog and pony show like Singapore) that doesn't use nature as a filter? I keep hearing about places but when I find out the details, its something like the purple pipes for recycled water for golf courses. There are a few now that are pumping water into aquifers and then pulling it back out but that tends to involve billions of tons of natural filters and mimics what has been going on with rivers where the water tends to be taken from below the riverbed where the biology is more consistent. There is also the London system which cleaned sewage went back into the water mains but that wasn't intentional.

The filters they were talking about on the local link don't get rid of hormones and have no hope of filtering prions.

Dear people of the Southwest:

If you want Great Lakes water, you're going to have to go through Illinois. All of us other Great Lakes states are armed to the teeth, even the wettest whiniest liberals here have concealed carry permits and enough armory to take on a full blown Zombie Apocalypse all by themselves. But not Illinois.

Inasmuch as there is no way to get water from the Great Lakes, over the Continental Divide to the Southwest, I think you can put your weapons down and pick up a geography textbook. The wettest, whiniest liberals probably have one you can borrow.

Believe it or not, when confronted with dwindling supply from the Colorado River, an official from (Nevada maybe?) just said "Oh, we'll just start piping it from the Great Lakes."

There was a large, collective "Oh no you won't." from over here.

You Americans should probably send a few people to Australia, specifically Brisbane, to see how to manage a drought at the city and state level. We have the lowest Water usage per capita in a first world country for a long while.
Then we had a flood, our water retaining habits are dying hard however.

Texas is getting greener, yet some still have a problem. Here in San Antonio we are building a desalination plant so we can use the shiat ton of brackish water around here. Already produce lots of solar power, the most wind power of any state, believe it or not we are at the front of the pack in utilizing renewable resources.

This technology has been used very successfully in other places. And it's pretty common to treat waste water for use in a grey water system(toilets, watering grass, etc) The biggest problem with the technology is that people like you get all squicky about it.

Except that all water is recycled. The water we drink is the same water that's been on earth for billions of years. We don't get 'new' water.

Water flows to the oceans, where it's sucked back up into the atmosphere. It then gets rained or snowed back into rivers where it again runs back to the oceans. Within that cycle it becomes our drinking water.

Our water has run through the digestive tracts of millions of animals over millions of years. I bet the water I used to make coffee this morning once was T-rex piss.

I honestly can't fault people for watering their lawns in the Flammable State. Really it depends on how often they're doing it.
