14. Actually, I Don't Know That Salt Would be Less Devastating
Look at the hulls of oceangoing ships that have been corroded by the same saltwater. Now extend that to the city's or the nation's plumbing systems.

We can build the interstate system and put a man on the moon. We can also create a parallel water distribution system just for toilets and retrofit the infrastructure, but it makes sense only in places where water is very scarce. It can be done, but in most places it is disproportionate to the lower cost of simply treating and conserving available fresh water.
