What I am about to share with you here in this article is rather disturbing. In laymen’s terms, “retreated water” is water that has already previously been used for one purpose, and then after previously being used, it goes through some process of filtration in an attempt to bring it back to “standard quality” so that it is once again deemed fit for human consumption. In other words, it is water that someone else somewhere has already used before you get it. Overall, over the past several years, reports indicate that the entire United States has seen an overall decrease in its natural water resource supply in lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, etc.{{more}} Add to this, the steady continuous year to year cycles of severe drought in certain specific regions all throughout the country and you can quickly see that America could very shortly be headed toward a real disaster in terms of its overall water resources. In a drastic attempt to lessen the effects of the national water resource shortage, many big cities and smaller rural communities have opted in to a federal water retreatment program in which waste water is recycled. Many residents in several of these communities have expressed concern based on the fact that they are saying that they are noticing a considerable difference in the overall quality of the water now flowing into their homes. Some residents report a brownish tinge color to the water coming out of their household faucets. Other residents have also reported a sewer like odor that seems to be coming from their kitchen faucets and bathroom sink faucets.
