Toilet to Tap: Would you drink recycled wastewater?

ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. — Would you drink a glass of wastewater turned into drinking water?

A company in California is hoping you at least give it a try.

“Toilet to Tap” is the nickname given to wastewater which is treated so it can be recycled for human use.

A plant in Orange County has been doing this for more than a decade, and is now working to convince the public that the water is clean and safe to drink.

The Orange County Water District recently set up a stand in Hollywood to give out free bottled samples.

They had a little trouble giving away their product to some, but others had no problems trying it!

Orange County is expanding operations, but right now the Water District has no plans to actually bottle the water.

According to WREG, the stand was set up to try to get people to accept the idea of recycled wastewater so the City could eventually pump it directly into the water system.
