California’s Solution, Recycling Water?

Experts say that California’s solution to the drought, if it keeps up, may be recycling and purifying sewage water into drinking water. Water managers throughout the state agree that the technology is here and ready, but the challenge will be cultural. Will people agree to use the water from their taps if they know it’s been flushed first?

According to The San Francisco Chronicle, “Orange County has a system in place that recycles 100 million gallons of wastewater a day — enough to quench the thirst of 850,000 people — by treating it and injecting it into aquifers.

Experts say such recycling is the path California must take if it expects to have enough water for a growing population.
