Borrowing a line from Finding Nemo, I’m continuing the water theme today. Riffing on Harry’s comment the previous entry…
We know where our water is sourced from in metro Atlanta. Some amount of it is ‘lost’ to manufacturing products that require water (I’m looking at you, Dasani). But the water that’s used in showers, toilets, washing, etc. is then treated and discharged.
Where does it go after we use it? Does it not get put back into the very ‘system’ (to use Harrys word) from which it came?
Have the sturgeon and mussels been living off of our discharge all this time?
