NASTY: Colorado to begin feeding recycled sewer sludge back through people’s drinking water taps
By Ethan Huff // Dec 16, 2022

"Toilet-to-tap" is slowly becoming the norm in the United States as supposedly dwindling water supplies caused by droughts and "global warming" force local governments to feed treated sewer sludge back through people's drinking water taps.

The latest area of the country to take this approach is Colorado, which appears to be in competition with other "progressive" states to become the most "sustainable."

Part of becoming sustainable means turning human society into a cattle society. Meat eventually becomes off limits, to be replaced by bugs and debris, and wastewater becomes drinking water, which is the direction Colorado is now taking.

"Every stream and river in this country has someone putting in their wastewater after they've treated it," said Eric Seufert, whose brewery in Castle Rock has been proudly serving wastewater-recycled beer to customers since 2017.

Seufert's operation was the exception, but the Colorado water quality agency this past fall gave the green light for direct potable reuse (DPR) practices to become the norm all across the state. (Related: Some parts of California have been recycling sewer water for years.)

Do Americans really want to drink chemically treated "recycled" water from their neighbors' toilet bowls?

Seufert is partially right about treated wastewater making its way into natural water sources that are then fed through people's taps. The difference with direct potable reuse is that water does not first have to be dispersed in a large body of water.

Toilet-to-tap means exactly what its name suggests: toilet water is treated and immediately fed back into the drinking water system without ever going back into nature for additional cleansing.

The idea was put up for a vote in the November election and a final approval was given on November 14 by the Colorado Water Quality Control Commission to implement the new DPR rule.

"We are very excited about the opportunity Colorado's DPR rule provides as our state and communities look for new and innovative ways to ensure safe, high-quality, and sustainable drinking water supplies now and into the future," announced WateReuse in celebration.

The goal is to transition the people of Colorado away from consuming groundwater, which goes through a natural cleansing process as it seeps into the ground through rocks, soil, and sediment. Instead, Coloradans will now be drinking chemically treated water straight from their neighbors' toilet bowls.

"I think it's an important tool for the long term because it gives water providers options to respond to future scarcity of water supplies, whether drought-driven or other reasons," said Mark Marlowe, director of Castle Rock Water.

Reports indicate that the treatment process for recycled toilet bowl water involves disinfection with ozone gas or ultraviolet light, along with filtration through membranes containing microscopic pores that remove solids and trace contaminants.

While such a process is not explicitly prohibited in most areas of the country, it is not typically the standard because allowing nature to do much of the work has long been seen as a better and safer approach for obtaining clean water.

It will still be a while before even Castle Rock starts actively utilizing toilet-to-tap as more testing is needed. The expectation is that in the next three-to-five years, Castle Rock and likely many other areas of Colorado will begin implementing toilet-to-tap systems to fight "climate change."

Water recycling is expensive, though. It also still relies on local water sources that, if the dwindling Colorado River is any indicator, can run dry, leaving large cities without any potable drinking water.

"If you've built a big direct potable reuse system and you don't have it even for a few years, that causes some problems," said Greg Fisher, the demand planning manager at Denver Water.
