    So Billy has found another way to profit from his "donations", just like his "free" vaccines and so on.
    You can have a clean water using a lifesaver bottle, it lasts for years, it is cheaper and simpler to use.

    The difference is that the lifesaver bottle works on a very small scale (individual or family) whereas the sewage plant works on a large scale (entire community). Other benefits of the sewage plant include producing water AND electricity as well as processing sewage that may have been allowed to contaminate nearby fresh water supplies. Both are beneficial and one doesn't replace the other.

    Yes, but the bottle is at least a realistic and imminent solution, building a factory is unlikely.
    Electricity can be simply provided by a home-made wind mill, one like that lightens a school.

    Anheuser Bush is the ultimate water recycler. They make beer out of Mississippi River Water, poop and all.

    Belly up to the bar, boys!
