Water reuse programs worldwide face a number of technical, economic, and regulatory challenges related to the long-term environmental, agronomic, and health impacts of the recycling of reclaimed water. Also, the economic benefit of water reuse in irrigation is difficult to determine, and must be weighed against environmental costs, making the decisions of wastewater engineers, administrators, and planners even more difficult. Water Reuse for Irrigation: Agriculture, Landscapes, and Turf Grass provides guidelines that facilitate the successful planning and operation of water reuse projects. Offering the needed information, analysis, and proven experience for agricultural and landscape irrigation, this volume bridges the gap between fundamental science and relatively uncharted areas of economic, institutional, and liability issues. It delivers a comprehensive synthesis of information recently emerging in both science and in the practice of irrigation with reclaimed water. The book compiles guidelines, recommendations, and codes of best practices from around the world for all types of recycled water uses, and it examines recent concerns about adverse effects on plants, groundwater, and public health.
