Water recycling for Use , environmental science homework help

Please read the attached article. Some things to think about:

1) Our normal drinking water needs to be filtered and processed because it has traveled hundreds of miles in exposed channels and it has to be purified to be free from pathogens. Even our rivers and lakes are polluted with bacteria and runoff from farmland and surrounding areas. Our normal drinking/tap water has to be chorinated to get rid of these pathogens.

2) Review the Orange County plan – is it literally from toilet to tap? What does Orange County do to the waste water in between these steps before it actually reaches the resident’s tap? Where does Orange County direct the water before it is processed in the treatment plant?

3) Does reading this article change your views? If so, why or why not?
