C'mon folks!  Hey, it's been done before and is being done now. We love that sewage water taste! dog drinking from toilet

Actually, as will read in this article, through the water filtration process, this treated water can easily be better for you than your favorite out-of-the-supposed-spring-bottled water you gulp each day in your car or on the train... 

California and many states face water shortages that may be with us for the long haul.

All Californians can do a better job or collecting rainwater too - this may soften the palate if this can be converted into drinking water - Green Project Marketing represents a leading rainwater harvesting company that can make this a reality.

For you techie's out there, the process is pretty interesting for Toilet to Tap - here it goes...

In potable reuse systems, effluent from a wastewater treatment plant is sent to an advanced treatment facility, where it undergoes a three-step purification process.

Phase I - water is passed through a microfilter that blocks particles, protozoans or bacteria that are larger than 1/300th the thickness of a human hair. Phase II - it undergoes even finer filtration in the form of reverse osmosis, in which water is forced through a membrane that blocks fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, viruses and salts. Phase III- ultraviolet light and hydrogen peroxide are used to break down any pathogens or organic compounds that escaped the first two steps.

The result is a purified substance that is cleaner than most bottled waters, according to WateReuse California, a group that advocates for water reuse and desalination. However, it is still sent to a traditional water treatment plant, where it is blended with other sources of water, processed and pumped to household taps.
