None. All the water is still on the planet, and waste treatment plants do not fare well on "pure concentrated evil". The bacterial colonies that convert "poop" to soil don't work well / fast with high concentrations of contaminants. Conserving water is only an issue because we "won't" drink water that someone else has passed through their urinary or excretory systems. Despite the fact that in our bodies are water molecules that have done exactly that. So the waste comes about when we require this water to go to the ocean, evaporate, and fall down as rain again. And the issue ("saving water") is raised by the government employees that have to supply us with water from "virgin" (hah!) sources.

Why is water wasted?

Wasting water means wasting energy. When the water you waste goes down the drain, that means the energy that was used to clean and filter that water went all to waste. The water goes back into the ground, and it takes even more energy to filter and clean it again. Some water also ends into the ocean and since it takes time for the flow of salt water to become clean water, our amount of clean water will decrease. So basically every pint of water that you waste ends up into the ground, sea, river never becomes automatically clean again.
