I would earnestly like to understand how wastewater would effect my supply
of water. Am I drinking washing machine soap?

During th e1977 draught in Monterey County, California, we in the closed
community of Pebble Beach all put a brick in our toilet resivoirs. It
caused a great build up of sludge in the sewer systems because of a lack of
proper drainage water. The sewers, in order to carry waste to the
wastewater control needs a certain amount of water. Talk about awsome. The
conservation of water worked so well, the sewage clogged the system.
