RENOVATED WASTEWATER AS A SUPPLEMENTARY SOURCE FOR MUNICIPAL WATER SUPPLY: AN ECONOMIC EVALUATION

The possibilities associated with the reuse of treated wastewater for domestic water supply purposes have long fascinated sanitary engineers. Wastewater renovation allows for the purification of sewage effluent through advanced waste treatment, making a high quality water available on site for municipal use. The apparent potential for domestic use of renovated wastewater, coupled with a growing concern and awareness of problems associated with water supply, as indicated by the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974, have made it imperative that an examination of renovated wastewater as a supplementary source of water supply be undertaken. The report presents an analysis of the cost of renovated wastewater as a supplementary source of water supply. Two water supply utilities provide the basis for a case study evaluation of the cost of renovated wastewater reuse.
