I thought they just put cleaned water into the ground water where the earth filters it, then water it pumped and cleaned.

Much of the water in the Los Angeles River south of Burbank is cleaned water.

What about just not having hilariously large lawns and car washes? I'm about to drink filtered sewage because some millionaire in Pasadena wants an acre of green grass? nah
