Where do you think your drinking water comes from? I don't know where you live but for most of the UK our clean drinking water comes via the sewage treatment plant.

Not where I live. Our water comes from wells tapped off the aquifer. Sewage water is treated and becomes reclaimed water. Reclaimed water is used to irrigate lawns and is not potable.

Mine comes from a magic bowl on the kitchen floor. It usually refills itself when I'm not looking. Clever bowl.

I drink out of a white porcelain bowl. Fresh water goes in several times a day when it gets flushed.

Eh? What gave you that idea? Sewage treatment is different to water treatment. Water treatment gets its water from rivers, reservoirs and aquifers. Sewage treatment gets its water from sewers.

Think MB was saying that its a bit odd to mix the sewage with clean water to then clean again to produce clean water. In the UK solids waste is extracted from sewage and treated and broken down.

This seems to make sense. They have sewage which needs treating. They have dirty snow/soon to be dirty water (presumably full of salt or other detritus that comes off the roads) which needs treating.

They'd need to mix sewage with water to whack it through the processing plant so why not kill two birds with one stone? The sewage is probably warmer and helps melt/dispose of the snow and bingo! They've got a lot of dirty water and sewage to put through the plant.

We really need a Russian water engineer to give us the low-down.
