    Default Drought-Stricken Texas Town to Recycle Urine

    Desperate Times, Desperate Measures: Drought-Stricken Texas Town to Recycle Urine

    According to Discovery News, the drought in Texas has gotten so desperate that the town of Big Spring is considering recycling toilet water for its 27,000 residents.While it sounds unusual (and more than a little gross) it's not that uncommon. NASA for example, has a system where they filter urine directly to salvage water.

    However, the process in Texas would work a little differently than NASA's system. "We're taking treated effluent (wastewater), normally discharged into a creek, and blending it with (traditionally supplied potable) water," Big Spring's district manager, John Gran, told Discovery.

    Which might not be enough to reassure the squeamish, but with less than 0.1 inches of rain in the region for months, you do what you have to do.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.
