Water re-use options to expand water supply portfolios

Friday, 04 September, 2009

To deal with water scarcity issues, the hunt for water must reach beyond the traditional means of new water supplies. A holistic water review is required to examine conservation, non-potable re-use, indirect potable re-use, impaired waters (brackish or contaminated waters), desalination and water sharing between adjacent communities.

Of the options listed above which involve water supply, water re-use is a universal solution that is not limited by climate, geographical location or water supply situation. The critical factor for re-use is the end use, which dictates the water quality requirements and drives the required level of treatment.
