California Dumping Infectiousness Parasite In Drinking Water

Have you ever wondered where the water you drink and use comes from?

The State Water Project (SWP) - California is the nation's largest state-built water and power development and conveyance system. Over 24 million people drink water from the Delta in the Los Angeles area.

People dump cat litter into toilets. Cat feces also runs into storm drains. T. gondii is a parasite that must live temporarily in a cat's gut. T. gondii changes the rat's behavior where it hangs around cats with no fear. The parasite controls the rats behavior. Rats are infected by the cats feces... Sewage is being dumped by cities nearby to rivers that flow into the Delta. T. gondii comes from cats and has no cure. It is the leading cause of birth defects and the number one cause of food borne infections. It is associated with schizophrenia. For most people, the symptoms are not particularly worrisome, and most cases go unreported. A person experiencing fever, diarrhea, vomiting and nausea may not seek medical attention, especially if the symptoms are gone within a few days. The condition may be self-diagnosed as a touch of flu or blamed on yesterday's spicy lunch. In truth, however, the person may be experiencing an infection acquired from drinking water.

The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit renewal for the Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District’s (SRCSD) Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant discharge to the Sacramento River. Federal Regulations mandate that NPDES permits include effluent limitations for all pollutants that are or may be discharged at levels that cause or have a reasonable potential to cause or contribute to an exceedance of a water quality standard, including numeric and narrative objectives within a standard. These models were used to determine the percentage of SRWTP effluent at several locations throughout the Delta. At this time there are no state or federal numeric water quality standards for nutrients to limit biostimulation for use in NPDES permitting.

The discharge is to the Sacramento River within the Delta. The Delta comprises over 700 miles of interconnected waterways and encompasses 1,153 square miles. The California State Water Project (SWP) gets it water from the Delta.

To make matters worse, cities dump sewage into the ocean. It infects everything that is warm-blooded. An example of T. gondii's impact: Most dead seals are infected with T. gondii.

Although it is now impossible to find toxin-free fish in Southern California’s waters, the city and county of Los Angeles show no sign of easing the daily dumping of millions of gallons of sewage offshore. Through the Hyperion treatment plant in El Segundo, the city of Los Angeles contributes 42.5% of Southern California’s daily output of 1 billion gallons of sewage. Of this 425-million-gallon share, only 100 million gallons—less than 25%--receives secondary treatment, which removes suspended solids missed by primary treatment. When suspended solids are removed, so are most of the toxins, which adhere to them.

All 425 million gallons a day are pumped through a common pipe that ends five miles off Santa Monica beach in 180 feet of water. This effluent is only 60% free of toxins because only 25% of it has undergone secondary treatment. If the entire output had received secondary treatment, 90% of the toxins would have been removed.

The most striking evidence of accumulated chlorinated hydrocarbons’ effects on mammals is seen in the massive tumors, cancers and internal abscesses found in stranded dolphins and sea lions on Southern California shores. Not surprising since the county sanitation districts contribute to coastal pollution through the state’s second-largest sewage treatment plant, which spews out 365 million gallons daily only two miles off San Pedro in 200 feet of water.

I discovered this information researching for my book, “Eyes Wide Shut: An Enigma.” It is unsettling…. At the Kettleman off-ramp located on the Interstate 5 in Central California there is a large billboard protesting sewage being dumped into the California State Water Project Canal. T. gondii kills people with immune deficiency problems… T. gondii changes our behaviors’. Most of us are infected. There is no cure… See:
