Similarly one may ask, where does the poop go?
From the toilet, your poop flows through the city's sewage system along with all the water that drains from our sinks, showers and streets. From there, it goes to a wastewater treatment plant.
Additionally, does poop go to the ocean? If you live near the coast your treated sewage probably goes into the ocean. The treated sewage is cleaned to make sure that it does not cause environmental problems. It also should not make people sick if they swim in the river or ocean. Scientists test the water and the sewage wastes to make sure that it is OK.
