    it can work if you basically use the effluent from a wastewater plant as the influent to a water treatment plant, a very good water treatment plant.

    To remove the drug residue they probably go with things like Reverse Osmosis, something that can get things as small as salt particles out of water, so large macro-chemicals like pharmaceuticals are easy to remove.

    Reverse Osmosis systems work too, but are expensive.
