About this book

Australian perspective on the use of reclaimed wastewater.

Reclamation and reuse of water from our urban and industrial wastewater treatment plants offers horticulturists the opportunity to maintain or expand their operations by securing water supplies indefinitely. Concerns over the quality of reclaimed water are generally from a chemical, physical and pathological aspect that potentially impact on the sustainability of the farming operation, yield or quality of produce, and the market acceptance of produce. "Growing Crops with Reclaimed Wastewater" provides the user with an historical background of water treatment, its use and disposal from Australian wastewater treatment facilities, the technologies now utilised to treat our wastewater, and the fundamentals required to ensure that reclaimed water schemes address the environmental, economic and social requirements of society today.
