    Pollys in it for themselves.

    Mr Beaty admits that planning to treat waste water to potable stamdard for Brissos would be political suicide and thought politicians at this level were supposed to be there for the good of the state. Heres Gorby telling all from experience that dams dont work and nuclear energy should be the last resort, but whos listening. So much for the Mary valley or the lung fish blah-blah-blah, Saw a label yesterday from chemists in Woolworths complex, under the word Woolworths was a picture of a happy PLATYPUS, now thats marketing.

    I have no problem drinking recycled purified water, I can't see the problem. #If you saw some of the dead things floating in reservoirs now you would think twice about drinking tap water. #Stopping treated sewerage flowing into the bay would have to be a plus for fishing as well.

    What we need are politicians with some guts who make a decision and stick to it, even if it is unpopular. #People want leaders who lead, not leaders who dither and try to get consensus.

    EVERYONE had their own agenda. Polliticians at all levels are only in it for themselves, with very few exceptions. Same for the green movements. Have to scream "end of the world" to get more funding. Don't believe a word you hear or read, including this

    I agree, there is nothing wrong with recycled waste water. The filtration systems that this water will go through is amazing. It will probably be better than anything we get out of the taps. It is just the Yuk factor that is putting everyone off.

    Bring it on Peter. It wil also mean that people won't loose their farm lands and houses. Step into the future everyone will be going there soon.

    Re: Pollys in it for themselves.

    They have been doing it ini parts of Asia and Europe for years !

    Recently the Courier Mail invited a few people to taste test different waters, including recycled water from Singapore.. Some were able to discern the bottled water, most said Brissy water tasted like Pool water, which is due to them having to bombard it with chemicals now because the dams are so low, but most didn't really notice a huge difference with the recycled water.

    Even if they were able to convert the system so it did your toilets, and out door taps for gardens / car / /boat washing and left the original dam water for drinking, cooking and bathing it would save a massive amount of resource!

    Starting to sound like Allan jones eh ? eek !

    Yep, there was one biologist on the weekend claiming the water treatment there proposing at Toowoomba would sanitise it to a state usable for kidney dialysis, yet there going to pump that water back into the dam, what the?

    Read somewhere (might have been ausfish ) that in Europe the average glass of water has been through 3 sets of kidneys

    and come to think of it if you have to mix water with you drinks why bother drinking it at all.

    Re: Pollys in it for themselves.

    well
    seeing the dams are so low and the drought ongoing i am for the recycled water

    first of all you don't taste a difference
    esp not to the tap water that i personally cant drink and in summer smelling the chlorine that comes out of the tap makes me think
    this cant be good for ya

    as being said, parts of Europe and Asia use recycled water and they are still alive
    i know its a hard concept to wrap ones mind around with the "through 3 sets of kidney thing" but looking at the future i think it's one that we should learn to deal with

    uh mm somehow this argument reminds me of discussion i had with my mother in law about fluoride in the water for stronger teeth and bones ( i benefited from that back in Europe)

    one thing i want to say too is rather recycled water then nuclear power
    but if i say that too loud i might be used as bait on north straddie

    just my two cents worth


    regards anya --

    ps :that spelchek thing is great

    Re: Pollys in it for themselves.

    i am all for ways to conserve water , and do my bit by showering with the missus every night , amongst other things, but i cannot for the life of me bring myself to drink recycled water. Yea , for sure there is the yuck factor , but i believe that , even in europe , that they cannot get all the heavy metals( created by human waste) out of the water. Sure it looks clean, but is it ????

    Re: Pollys in it for themselves.

    thats a fair point
    how safe is it ?
    http://www.melbournewater.com.au/con...and_health.pdf

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recycled_water

    well these are just two links
    but i m still googleing for more info
    apparently it can be treated to safe drinking standards


    but even if not it could be used for firefighting ,irrigation, washing cars and boats or houses and all those things
    that would make a huge difference i think
    grey water for irrigation would be a good idea too
    rainwater tanks as well
    but in the long run something needs to be done and figured out

    which brings me to a different question that popped into my head the other day seeing council trucks watering the side of the street
    what water do they use?? do council have rainwater tanks ? why not use grey water for jobs like that ?

    there isnt enuff water anymore so we do need help



    regards anya (who always got annoyed seeing some water their lawn when it definetly looked like rain #[smiley=angryfire.gif])

    Apparently the reverse osmosis filters that are used, can filter the salt out of water. If they can take the salt out, then just about everything else is taken out. There are not many molecules, smaller than a salt molecule, bacteria and viruses included.
