As world populations require both more clean water and better ways to dispose of wastewater, the demand for water reclamation will increase.
As world populations require both more clean water and better ways to dispose of wastewater, the demand for water reclamation will increase. Reclaimed water, sometimes called recycled water, is former wastewater that has been treated to remove solids and certain impurities, and then reused for a variety of applications including landscaping, irrigation, and recharging groundwater aquifers. Treating water for reuse is an important part of water conservation efforts and in some regions of the world makes great economic sense.
Benefits of wastewater reuse:
- The water and nutrient content in treated wastewater can be very useful for agricultural purposes
- It enables municipalities to generate revenue by selling their sewage
- Wastewater reuse contributes to National Development
- It provides a strong motivation for effective O&M thus controlling the Environmental pollution
- Provides opportunities for privatization
