All water molecules are linked with hydrogen ions, not just natural waters.  
Hydrogen bonding is one of the key principles in the properties of water.  
An electric field strong enough to deter hydrogen bonding would kill any 
organism in the water, not to mention initiate boiling.
Aerobic breakdown of waste is more efficient than anaerobic processes.  A 
less expensive way to maintain dissolved oxygen levels is to physically 
bubble air through the system.  I believe his idea has no merit.
