Water recycled from a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) or sewage treatment plant (STP) can be a significant resource. The recycled water is treated to standards required for its various uses (i.e. made fit-for-purpose). Recycled water can be used for:

  • irrigation schemes (urban and rural),
  • industry,
  • residential non drinking purposes,
  • drinking,
  • the environment (through processes such as contributing to river flows and pumping into aquifers - aquifer recharge).

This section details lists various schemes and developments across Australia and world that recycle water from sewage effluent for various enduses.
