Recycled water

In orbital space settlements water recycling is essential. So it is quite worrisome when we read the following article on ScienceDaily:

Get over it? When it comes to recycled water, consumers won’t

To cite from this article (my emphasis):

If people are educated on recycled water, they may come to agree it’s perfectly safe and tastes as good — or better — than their drinking water. They may even agree it’s an answer to the critical water imbalance in California. But that doesn’t mean they’re going to use recycled water — and it sure doesn’t mean they’ll drink it.

The problem is that educated people are disgusted to use a perfectly safe product that is necessary for staying alive. Perhaps people should not think too much about the origin of their tap water – if education is apparently not sufficient in this case.
