Refilter dirty water to save resource

2016-04-28 06:00

THE only thing that I can think of when it comes to burst pipes is a possible conspiracy theory.

Could it be possible that the municipalities are wasting water in an attempt to finish the resource so that people can just pay more for it since they have threatened to increase prices?

Nevertheless, can’t the municipality send out a water tanker to every burst pipe?

The water coming out through the fire hydrant is not clean. Hence, if a water tanker takes away the dirty water and puts that water back into a dam we would have efficiently saved the water instead of letting it go down the drain.

The same can be said if there is a terrible leak like that which has been experienced.

Surely the water tanker can again use a wide hose and pick up that dirty water and put it back into the dams, where it will go through the process of being filtered again.
