US thinks Toowoomba drinks recycled water ...

Another reason Toowoomba residents are grateful for the Di and Kevin sideshow of the past few years.

Their legacy!

In the US, they write articles about the people of Toowoomba drinking recycled water:

In fact, Toowoomba, a city in Australia, has applied that policy in a way that many would oppose: Residents have been drinking recycled sewage water. People in parts of Australia have become desperate because of recurring droughts in the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

See - Postbulletin.com - Bill Boyne: Effects of global water shortage can be averted.

Sorry Bill, you've got it wrong.

Leave aside for a moment the fact that these journalists do no homework.

Otherwise they'd realise that the recycled water proposal was defeated by 62% to 38% at the poll in 2006.

People still think of Toowoomba as Poowoomba.

And it will take some time for that image to fade.

Thank you Toowoomba City Council ...

I like how Bill says - in fact etc - nothing could be further from the truth. Idiot.

Every one should get in touch with Bill and his paper and ask them to retract that statement.
