Queensland Drought: Citizens to Drink Recycled Water
People in the Australian state of Queensland will soon have to start drinking water containing recycled sewage, the state premier has warned.
Premier Peter Beattie said he had scrapped a planned referendum on the issue, because there was no longer a choice.
He also warned that other states in Australia might eventually have to do the same as Queensland.
The country is currently suffering from a severe drought - the worst on record.
