I think i have found the problem with our differing points of view.  all 
of my information on sewage discharge is from Navy courses held by Navy 
hazardous materials coordinators.  Apparently the Navy is held to a 
higher standard than municipal systems.  Since everything they were 
saying is you could literally take a glass full of the discharge and 
drink it and it be potable.  I was under the impression that all systems 
were held to the same standard.

Also are you saying that the ammounts we pay don't cover the costs of 
delivery & treatment?  If so please explain the Privately held companies 
that do either or both of these items?  they do exist.  not all 
municipal systems are owned by the city.
