Sewers? Really big chunks floating to the top? Politics? Seems perfectly on-topic to me...

Years ago while working for my local county, I was spraying a ditch contaminated with pollution. The temperature topped 100 degrees F that day, and I was in full protective clothing. I began to get heat stroke, so I searched for some water.

I found a sewage pipe draining into the ditch and thirstily gulped down massive quantities of the grayish sewage water, which I perceived to be from a farm separated by a large field. I felt much relief. My coworker thought I was absolutely crazy.

Anyway, eventually we got back to a road, and he located a farm house which had clear, cold well water. I drank lots of that, too. It was better than the sewage water, but I might have feinted back there in the ditch if I had not consumed the sewage water.

Sewage water can sustain life.

Is this story from the Sludge Report?
