Drink Up, LA! That's Eau du Pooh

More information on that plan to turn our sewage into tasty drinking water: The New York Times reports LA isn't the only city looking in the toilet. San Diego and South Florida are also mulling the idea, and Orange County opened a $481 million plant in January to turn our caca into wawa. But not to fear -- "None of the proposals or recycling projects already under way send the treated water directly into taps; most often the water is injected into the ground and gradually filters down into aquifers." That's reassuring. [NY Times]
