The city of Big Spring, Texas has come up with a $13 million solution to its ongoing drought: a treatment plant that can turn sewage into drinking water. The pricey plant can transform wastewater into 2 million gallons of potable water per day.
Texas is just one of several states that use reclaimed water for fountains, irrigation purposes and other non-drinking purposes. The Big Spring plant would take this reclaimed water and purify it even further until it's safe to drink and use in showers, toilets and sinks.
