Seventy per cent of Australians would drink recycled sewage

No surprise to anyone, Aussies are quite happy to eat shit.

According to The Australian, which ran a poll:

AN overwhelming majority of Australians would be prepared to drink recycled sewage to help ease a national crisis in urban water supplies that has forced escalating restrictions on water use.

.. Treated effluent is used overseas and has been proposed by water experts as a way to end uncertainty about Australia’s water supply amid the drought and difficulty in finding appropriate locations for new dams. …

Prime Minister John Howard, the National Water Commission, city utilities and scientists all agree Australian towns and cities must consider using recycled waste water to top up dwindling supplies.
