    The lovely city of San Diego California will start recycling sewage as
    drinking water soon, after completing construction of the new treatment
    plants. Another much smaller city on the east U.S. coast does this as
    well. San Diego expects to purchase water at the highest cost in the
    United States within a few years. Just recently, SANDAG and the Southland
    Empire government associations celebrated 50 years of imported water. San
    Diego, a veritable paradise, is actually a harsh desert. The primary
    concern about the new sewage recycling system is not bacterial or viral
    contamination, but radioactive waste buildup and overconcentrated
    chemicals from the sterilization process.
