Isn't all water reused?
Yes, the water we use today has been used over and over again. Water reuse happens daily on rivers, streams, and all other bodies of water. If you live in a community downstream of another, chances are you are reusing its water. This phenomenon has been called “de facto” or unacknowledged potable reuse.
