An Oregon water treatment company wants to turn sewer water into beer. But current state rules wouldn't allow anyone to drink it.
Clean Water Services runs four wastewater treatment plants in the Portland metro area. Some of its treated water is used for irrigation.
But spokesman Mark Jockers said the market for recycled wastewater doesn't have to end there.
His company has an advanced treatment process that can turn sewage into drinking water. To show off that system, it wants to give some of its highly purified wastewater to home brewers.
