Eco-friendly wastewater management
“Living Machine” ecological wastewater treatment systems
On a recent road-trip up north, I had the pleasure of seeing a Living Machine wastewater treatment system in person. It was at a rest stop in Vermont (quite possible the nicest, cleanest rest stop I’ve seen in my life. You could enjoy a nice lunch inside the bathrooms!)
This type of wastewater system uses plants to cleanse the water for re-use, instead of complicated (and often faulty) traditional sewage treatment systems.
Why can’t we have improved sewage treatment in our cities?
All the reports I’ve read indicate that not only are these systems self-sustaining and reliable, but buildings or institutions that use them save up to 85% off their water bills.
Makes you wonder why you don’t see innovative technology like this around here.
