Recycled Water From Sewers Coming to California Taps

March 9, 2018 SF Gate 2

The California Water Resources Control Board will allow treated recycled water to be added to reservoirs, the source of California municipal drinking water. [It is probably true that chemical treatment of sewage will kill most bacteria in sewage, but who dares to look carefully at the chemicals? The chemicals used for purification might be even more deadly than the sewage. Never mind building new reservoirs to store rain water as it flows out to sea from the Sierra mountains. Let’s drink treated sewage instead!]
