From the SMH:
Respondents were asked whether they were "very comfortable, mildly comfortable, mildly uncomfortable or very uncomfortable with drinking recycled sewage, including toilet water, that is treated to drinking-water quality". Only 12 per cent said they were very comfortable, and a further 17 per cent were mildly comfortable. Sixty-eight per cent were uncomfortable.
But respondents were more open to drinking recycled water if it was mixed with rainwater in Warragamba Dam. Some 48 per cent supported the "shandying" option, while only 44 per cent opposed. Six per cent neither opposed nor supported the option, and 2 per cent said they were unsure.
The "shandying" option? Hopefully this "Sydney Shandy" has a good bouquet, is easy on the palate and, ahem, a low viscosity.
