At first blush, Deconstructing Disinformation may not seem like the place for this thread, but I think that it really is. We are dis-informed about the disposal of human waste. This amazing video from Vice Magazine essentially follows a turd from the toilet to its final resting place.

The title of this thread is actually the name of the video, and it's accurate. Most people don't.

ATS user AhsoVaniva recently started a post about using a sawdust toilet (which we have done). Made me think about posting this.

Interesting video, haha kind of wish I didn't see that, but hey I am here to learn not to be ignorant.
There is a lot wrong with our food and it should really be investigated more. Thanks for sharing.

I think the OP has left the building so I went thru and starred all for participation.

Hope I'm not in the crapper...

I'm still amazed in this day and age all that fecal matter can't be converted into bio-fuel.

So it goes.

I didn't watch the video all the way through, mostly because I used to be a Class 3 Wastewater Operator and a Wastewater Lab Analyst, so it's all too familiar to me. IMO the biggest shock people get is the use of treated sludge in composting. It is required by EPA regulations to be of a certain class of purity, but the idea of getting compost made from human waste to put in your garden can be disturbing.

On the disinformation side, the treatment facilities in NYC are often not up to dealing with the size of the population, especially in the case of water infiltration into the collection system, in which case it may overflow into city storm drains rather than boil up in the streets. It's been said that it's cheaper for the city to pay EPA fines for dumping raw sewage than to pay to upgrade the facilities. And trying to upgrade the collection system with that many people living on top of it is not really an option. Locals, including people on the NJ side of the river, know well what's actually in that river.
