Singapore Running Out Of Fresh Water - Turns To Recycled Sewage As Main Source Of Drinking Water
[link to www.dw.de]

"Singapore is one of Asia’s most powerful economies, but it lacks a reliable water supply. A wastewater-reuse plant could change that by soon recycling enough sewage to meet 50 percent of the nation’s water needs."


As the worlds supply of Fresh Water becomes scarce, the recycling of sewage is now taking place in Australia and is planned to soon begin in several States including California and Arizona.

Australian Government Officials claim "it is not possible to prevent potentially harmful organisms from entering southeast Queensland's water supply when recycled sewage is added to it"

Wow, I think even more interesting than your first link is your second link, saying Australia is going to start doing this soon, as well as California!

And that article in from 2008!

Lots of places already filter and treat sewer water and return it to the drinking water.Been doing that for quiet a long time.
