About this book

The International Symposium on Wastewater Reclamation and Reuse was organized by the IAWPRC Water Reuse Group and the Universidad Politecnico de Cataluno in response to the growing worldwide awareness of the advantages and importance of wastewater reuse in both the developed and the developing world. Evidence from schemes in many parts of the world, in particular arid or semi-arid countries, has shown that treated wastewater can safely perform many of the functions carried out by unpolluted water, often providing a much needed supplement to unreliable fresh water supplies. The proceedings of the conference are published here under the seven technical themes of the symposium which discuss all aspects of water reclamation including water quality and the possible effect on public health as well as the technology, management, planning and applications for treated water. These topics are then examined further in the 28 selected papers by authorities on the subject from around the world to provide a study of water reclamation essential for anyone working in this field.
