Texas Drought So Bad Locals Will Recycle Urine
Here in Michigan we really can't relate to a bad drought. It's been a dry several weeks here, but in Texas it has been a dry several months. So severe that locals have begun to recycle sewage water. Make mine bottled please.
Big Spring, Texas, home to the Colorado River Municipal Water District, will be experimenting with reprocessing waste water produced by the town's 27,000 residents as a way to increase water supplies, according to Discovery News.
In essence, the system speeds up what would naturally occur with the flow of discharged water through wetlands, with more pristine results.
The triple-digit heatwave that's gripping much of the U.S. has been anchored in Texas and limited the state to just 40 percent of its normal rainfall for this time of year. So when you compare Michigan weather to Texas, I think I'll stick to Michigan, plus the water is better here.
