Parched Texas Town Turns to Treated Sewage as Emergency Drinking Water Source
WICHITA FALLS, Texas—City officials began blending 5 million gallons a day of treated wastewater into their municipal water system this week, launching one of the biggest so-called direct reuse programs in the country.

While some residents in this city of about 105,000 are concerned about drinking water from a sewage treatment plant, city officials and business leaders say it was the only way to adapt to an unprecedented dry spell. The lakes that supply the city have dropped below 25 percent of their capacity.

Apparently you don't understand how aquifers work. Some aquifers have water that is from the last big ice age are being depleted quickly while others depend on rain and/or snow melt to replenish.
