My problem with this is that they water their garden by diverting the water draining from their clothes washing machine as well as from a hot tub.

Is this normal? I can not eat these veggies knowing that they have been soaking up the neighbors 'bath' water.


What do think is going to happen?

I have pulled my garden through severe droughts with washing machine a shower water. The soil is a living thing, and has no problem processing what ever low level of 'human waste' is in bath or washing runoff. My city processes solid waste into soil and gives it away.
