The outfalls of most US high quality sewage treatment plants is actually purer and cleaner than most mountain streams.

We already do, in many cases. If your water comes out of a river the odds are that someone discharges waste upstream. Even if humans don't touch it, there are fish and animals doing their thing in surface water. At least here in the west you can't drink out of those pure mountain streams because of giardia. Well water often has its own issues.
So, no, I wouldn't worry about treated wastewater.

Despite all of the warnings, we've been sucking our water sources dry. We need to change our act now. We need to get over our squeamishness and recycle our water. We need big, municipal (and possibly federal) changes like cleaning our sewage into drinkable water. We need little changes at home like using bath/shower drainage to flush our toilets and storing rainwater for our lawns and gardens.

We've taken our water for granted too long, and now much of the country is really feeling the penalty for that complacency.

All water you drink is recycled. You think God is sitting there, creating new water for us? It's all been recycled for a really, really long time.

That said: I saw a posting for a home in Mesa, Arizona. It had both a pool and a front walk way "water feature" (fountain).

Sorry, but this should be illegal or heavily taxed. HOA's can have community pools (safer for your toddlers, even), and you do not need a water feature in Arizona. Yes, they're pretty, but so is the sight of fields of grain.

I don't have a problem with it as long someone doesn't tell me about it. *sticks fingers in ears* LA LA LA LA LA, I can't hear you!
