They are only using recycled water for non potable applications, they could recycle the water more completely and use it for potable water. They have taken the first step, the just haven't completed the journey. They are behind the curve because others have gone to that final step. The biggest roadblock is not cost or lack of technology though, it's probably public perception. It's hard to get people use to the idea of drinking "sewer water".
