Wastewater Treatment Plant Tour – “Flush To Finish”

A very interesting video on how wastewater is turned into clean water at a typical sewage treatment plant ...

Most sewage treatment is biological (natural bacteria) encouraged by heat and stirring up of the sewage. Then there is screening. Chemicals are used very sparingly in sewage treatment, due to the the risk of chlorine disinfection byproducts, which cause cancer.

Eric Andersen – Thirsty Boots

"Thirsty Boots" is a Civil Rights era folksong by American singer-songwriter Eric Andersen that first appeared on his 1966 album 'Bout Changes 'n' Things. According to the album's liner notes, the song "was written to a civil rights worker-friend. Having never gone down to Mississippi myself, I wrote the song about coming back."

The song, one of Andersen's best known, has been covered by artists such as Judy Collins, John Denver, Anne Murray, and The Kingston Trio. In various stage appearances, Collins has claimed that Andersen wrote the song's last verse on a matchbook cover while in her bathroom.[citation needed]. Eric Andersen tells this story himself in the documentary Greenwich Village: Music That Defined a Generation[1] Bob Dylan also recorded this song for his album Self Portrait, but it did not make the final cut. However, it was released as a 7" vinyl single in April 2013 from Bob Dylan The Bootleg Series Vol. 10.

Andersen has stated in interviews that Phil Ochs encouraged him to finish the song, and later recordings of "Boots" were dedicated to the late folksinger.
