Los Angeles Plans On Recycling Wastewater For Residents To Drink

Recently in the news, you have probably seen many reports about how the powers that be, plan on making living “sustainable.”

What they usually won’t tell you, is the process and now a new water conservation plan in the city of Los Angeles, has proposed that sewer water should be recycled and given back through people’s taps as their main source of drinking water.

This is not a new plan, Bill Gates, the unelected and unqualified medical overlord, already presented this idea when he drank recycled sewage in an attempt to sell it as the new way to live.

The water will be filtered, but many of the contaminants that are present in the “direct potable reuse” bio sludge is not able to be filtered out and will still contain traces of sewage products and chemicals.

“This differs from indirect potable reuse, where water spends time in a substantial environmental barrier such as an underground aquifer or in a reservoir,” reported the Los Angeles Times about the concept.

The technology is also known as “toilet to tap” and is a concept that has been making the rounds since the 1990s and some areas have used bio sludge to replenish groundwater supplies – water is put back into the ground, filtered by natural sediment, then pumped back into people’s homes and businesses.

Because of the on-going drought problems that California has experienced over recent years, some are pushing for toilet to tap technology to become a normal thing – one person being Brad Coffey of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, despite lawsuits being filed over the years, questioning what this system does to the environment, let alone people.

“There’s been a public health legacy where sanitary engineering practices and regulators considered sewage a waste, it was something to be avoided, something to be feared,” Coffey is quoted as saying.

“Now that we have the technology … the public, the regulators, the scientific community has much greater confidence in our ability to safely reuse that water supply.”

The State Water Resources Control Board has been given the responsibility by legislators to come up with a plan for regulations on direct potable reuse by New Year’s Eve 2023.

Projects are already underway in Los Angeles to ensure the city is ready once they are given the greenlight – suggesting that they are serious about moving forward with their plans.

According to Jesus Gonzalez, manager of water recycling policy at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power said that if the demonstration facility for direct potable reuse – which is located near the Headworks reservoir, north of Griffin Park in Los Angeles – is approved, it will be the state’s first direct potable water project.

“This is going to be the future of L.A.’s water, the future of the state’s water supply,” Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez expects the Headworks facility to become fully operational within the next five years – pumping bio sludge into people’s homes.

According to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, by 2035, 100 percent of the city’s wastewater will be recycled back into people’s homes – made possible by the Hyperion Water Reclamation Plant – which treats wastewater which is later released into Santa Monica Bay.
