As homeowners, we tend to think more about the things coming into our house (i.e. electricity, gas, water, pests, etc.) rather than the things going out. However, lots of stuff leaves our homes every day in the form of waste.
What happens to it? Do you really want to know? I think inquiring minds want to know.
I recently met a water engineer who told me that while most people don't think about it, the costs of dirty water leaving our homes is more expensive than the costs of water coming into our homes -- the sewer part of the water & sewer bill makes up more of the expenses.
Arlington County, Virginia recently released a video that explains what happens to our "crap" at its waste treatment facility. If you've ever driven down South Glebe Road towards the intersection of Route 1 in Arlington (near Crystal City) you've likely noticed the stench.
