This is what the drought will do for ya. It becomes necessary to look for other sources of drinking water besides lakes and rivers, and one town in Texas is turning to toilet water.

The water will go from toilets, to the wastewater treatment plant, and back to faucets essentially.

Where is this happening?

NPR says the city of Wichita Falls, may soon become the first in the country where half of the drinking water comes directly from wastewater. This comes after three years of extreme drought, and the city has to do something.

The mayor insists the water will be clean and safe, but some people in the town are talking about switching to bottled water.

What would you do?
