Demand for wastewater as a reliable source water and nutrients for agriculture is growing in response to population growth, urbanization, increasing water scarcity and the effects of climate change. WHO produces global guidelines and tools to improve treatment and manage health risks at all steps of the chain where wastewater is used. Wastewater Re-use and Groundwater Quality. this book addresses microbial and chemical contamination, the epidemiology of contamination, exposure assessment, and policy analysis. Description: This book discusses major technological advances in the treatment and re-use of wastewater. Its focus is on both novel treatment strategies and the modifications and adaptions of conventional processes to optimize the treatment of a complex variety of pollutants, including organic matter, chemicals and micropollutants in different. Wastewater treat- ment facilities receiving substantial amounts of high- strength industrial wastes may be limited in the number and type of suitable reuse applications.

Examining the current literature, research, and relevant case studies, presented by a team of international experts, the Urban Water Reuse Handbook discusses the pros and cons of water reuse and explores new and alternative methods for obtaining a sustainable water supply. The book defines water reuse guidelines, describes the historical . The guidelines apply to end-uses ranging from drip irrigation of woodlots, to urban and agricultural irrigation and potable re-use. Location and Setting In Australia, as experienced in much of the world, the beginning of the 21st century has been characterised by increased pressure on freshwater supplies in all large cities and most regional areas.
