How is the local hydrologic cycle affected by the practice of drawing drinking water from a river and then returning sewage to the same river?
Can anyone please help?????? THANKS A LOT!!!!!
Unless the sewage is processed, then people are drinking what they've recently urinated and defecated.

You really get a kick out of it if you live in San Jose.
But that version doesn't include the San Jose reference.
