    Your concern is the raw sewage water and the very simple answer to your question is that the water we drink now is recycled naturally from whatever goes into the environment anyway.
    Well let me tell you the truth about water. The water we are drinking today is the same water billions or million years ago, our ancestors drunk. Therefore, it does not matter which cities in the world are recycling the water. There is no other choice but to recycle and reuse the water.
    I hope this is the right answer.

    They say that every glass of water you drink in the UK has been through at least ten people before you. Considering the UK is a fairly small Island with about 60 million people living on it, I would guess that that figure is correct. Yuck....

    In my community, the liquid effluent from our waste treatment plant (it's called "grey water") is distributed in piping right next to the potable water... and is used for irrigation.....
