Thursday, July 9, 2009 | The objections and fears associated with “toilet to tap”, or “water reuse” are just not logical. Come on, humans have been urinating and eliminating their bowels on this planet for tens of thousands of years. This waste, not to mention that of every other animal that shares this planet has always been a part of the water system. The water we currently drink has been recycled over and over and over again through the natural process that exists on this dynamic globe of ours. There is no such thing as fresh, pure, virgin water … think about it! I know everyone learned about this in elementary school.
With a toilet to tap or reusable system in place, all we would be doing is speeding up what Mother Nature does already. Get over it already, we have a serious water problem in our region to solve.
