News item the San Diego Tourist Bureau should ignore


SAN DIEGO -- Drinking toilet water out of your faucet is an idea that is getting closer to reality for people living in the city of San Diego.

The $210 million plan to recycle sewage water is now on the desk of the City Council's Natural Resources Committee. The proposal calls for highly treated wastewater to be piped to the San Vicente Reservoir, where it will mix with raw river water.

The mixed water will eventually be distributed to faucets citywide. The plan is the only one of its kind in California.


  • Wow. That's a recipe for Crypto. San Diego finally has a flaw!

  • If it's good enough for submariners, it's good enough for San Diegoans.

    I bet this catches on like crazy out west.

  • I'm sure it's fine and safe too. It just as a pretty big yuck factor to it.
