A Paragraph to Ponder

From the New York Times today by Isabel Kershner - Aided by Sea, Israel Defeats Old Foe: Drought:

"Israel has, in the meantime, become the world leader in recycling and reusing wastewater for agriculture.  It treats 86 percent of its domestic wastewater and recycles it for agricultural use - about 55 percent of the total water water used for agriculture.  Spain is second to Israel, recycling 17 percent of its effluent, while the United States recycles just 1 percent, according to Water Authority data."
