But then came the truth.
There are problems we've uncovered that are part of this model. Like the fact that people are wasting water in their homes and businesses. We know all this water leads eventually to the WWTF and the ocean. There's very little freshwater on the Earth compared to the amount of salt water, and it seems like we're not working hard to keep it as freshwater.
We also figured out that there were a lot of problems regarding runoff--for what it brings into fresh bodies of water along with how it prevents water from going into the ground, and instead ends up in our sewers. We are thinking we should be developing some solutions to combat these problems, and figure out ways to keep more freshwater either on the surface in various bodies of water or in the ground.
But until then, we're really still curious about that pipe that doesn't lead to the WWTF. Where exactly does that pipe lead to? Is that pipe a problem, too? Or can it help with a solution to all these other problems we identified?
