Australian Guidelines For Water Recycling: Managing Health And Environmental Risks (Phase1) 2006 2.2MB
This document is an authoritative reference for the supply, use and regulation of recycled water schemes. When recycling water, it is essential to protect the health of both the public and the environment, and a risk management approach is the best way to achieve this. The risk management framework used in these guidelines is based on the framework detailed in the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. As the framework is generic it can be applied to any system that is recycling water. The framework involves identifying and managing risks in a proactive way, rather than simply reacting when problems arise.
