Are you drinking wastewater?
Researchers at the University of Arizona find that many communities that take water from rivers are basically drinking wastewater from their neighbors upstream. So why don't we do it right? Treat our wastewater until it's potable and then introduce it back into the public water system. This would reduce natural contaminates like arsenic and reduce the calcification that gums up your coffee maker. And of course reduce our demand on rivers and aquifers.
