Parched Texas Town Turns To Sewage Water To Keep City Flush With Water

"When the going got tough due one of with worst droughts in a century, the parched Texas city of Wichita Falls got going with its program to recycle sewage water for drinking.

The city this month opened the spigots on a $13 million system that mixes 5 million gallons a day of treated waste water with area lake water to keep drinking water flowing for its 105,000 residents.

Convincing them to drink it is another matter."
