Would you drink that recycled sewer water? Even if its 100% purified?

    You'll find that to a certain extent you already do. Isn't sewerage treated, the water treated further, then released into rivers which eventually feed reservoirs etc, before being fully purified for drinking? In London they used to say each glass of water had been through 9 pairs of kidneys before you drink it.
    And as for water drwan from rivers then purified, just think of all the things fish do in it...

    When it comes to bodily substances, "What comes out, stays out." Not even god himself could convince me of it's purification.

    We brush our teeth with it. Wash our private parts with it. And more importantly rinse our dishes and food in it. Are we really avoiding contact with it to begin with?

    every water has to be cleared and purified of impurities before they go out on market and is tested first...PERIOD! if not for this process then people could get sick and lawsuits will follow. do you really think that water from an purified spring in fiji is really the way that it is supposed to be shipped out? many microscopic bugs and insects and other bacteria live in those waters so if one thinks that they're drinking right from the source then you're obviously in a world of hurt!

    Perhaps if they were to place bottled water under the microscope they might see all kinds of little things not seen by the naked eye!

    So long's that they have a way to prove that the water has been purified...

    However, we're dumping filtered waste water into the ocean, and then get clean water either from the deep mountains or from desalinization.

    Therefore, either way, I don't think there's much difference..

    It's all been recycled a few thousand times.

    You live in Boston, do you drink the city water? If so, then guess
    what, you have been drinking it every time you do. That is what sewage
    treatment plants do.

    I don't drink tap water, they claim that they have cleaned up Boston Harbor, I don't believe it. I drink bottled water not purified.

    If you drink city water, that is what you are drinking, go down to your local waste treatment plant, they skim it, clean it, and then it is shipped to your treatment plants.

    Actually they are both perfectly safe, because of how they are filtered and then clorinated.
