Brackish Water

On reading Jack's Shipslog blog ,he partly wrote about water. It reminded me of brackish water. Someone told me that is just a nice way of saying sewer water. Anyway when I was getting my last round of treatments one night I went to Kerrville, Texas with my daughter to receive her certification in Master Naturalist along with a couple of pins. The speaker that night spoke about brackish water. I was shocked to learn some people are already drinking this water out of their taps and if I understood him correctly they weren't notified yet but would be by their water bill. Seems wrong to me and seems there would be some angry people when they find out. It was very interesting and I'm sure will need to be done. Can't remember the word to describe the transferring the bad water into good water (time to go to bed, can't look it up now). After they do that process the water is too clean and it has to go through another process.

WATER is the most precious commodity we have, isn't it?

There are times learning is not a GOOD thing for the psyche. LOL A friend of mine put in an expensive septic system in Pennsylvania. The company that installed it said he could drink the water from his septic tank after the process. SO IMMA THINKING, NOT ME! lol

Brackish water (less commonly brack water) is salt water and fresh water mixed together. It is saltier than fresh water, but not as salty as seawater

I'm remembering the water years ago. In the country it was clear and refreshing, and in the city it smelled and tasted like bleach. Now there are so many different ways of recycling water, the idea makes me sick. It's sad what we have done to such a valuable resource.
