Description Water reuse has become an integral part of comprehensive water planning to meet the increasing demands on limited water resources in the arid and semi-arid Southwest. While current wastewater reclamation technology is capable of producing finished water of any desirable quality, the amount of impurities (pollutants) in reclaimed wastewater after conventional treatment may accentuate the potential impact of the direct use of reclaimed wastewater for agricultural and landscape irrigation, the largest users of reclaimed wastewater. Through the support of the Regional Water Program, we investigated the impacts of water reuse on agricultural production, the environment, and human health and outreach activities to promote reclaimed wastewater reuse.
