Sewage is dealt with quite effectively in a modern water treatment facility. There are just a very few mountain communities that don't have someone upstream from them returtning treated sewage into your water source.
The problem is potential radioactive elements and heavy metals that Cannot be treated and removed effectively from that glass of water you are about to drink.
The old Bumpass Cove landfill is a Superfund site that was never properly decontaminated. Your water still contains heavy metals such as lead and zinc that cause Serious physical problems.
Don't worry about the poo. It's handled.
Worry about the lead.
Look up the health effects of that poison on Wikipedia.
