Greywater Reuse

Graywater is outlined as family wastewater generated by means of baths and showers, sinks, laundry, and kitchen/dishwashing. Reuse of graywater permits water for use at the very least twice-initial use and native recycling. every so often, water might be recovered for a 3rd use-agriculture irrigation, therefore resulting in a reductions of 10-20 percentage of water intake.

Sample text

Nitrates in fertilizer, used on farms and also on home lawns and gardens, can seep into groundwater, which can be very harmful to pregnant women. " Also, nutrients cause excessive algal growth in lakes and estuaries. Deposits of hydrocarbons from automobile traffic enter runoff and cause pollution, especially after chlorination. Pesticides are harmful in many cases. Along the Eastern seaboard, groundwater may be invaded by infiltrating sea water where excess withdrawals from an aquifer lowers pressure.

Natural water is almost always required to be treated prior to use, with the extent and kind of treatment varying widely. The main programs of water pollution control that are required for broad environmental purposes are designed as to reduce pollution from municipal waste treatment plants and major industries (Chapter 8). These programs are generally successful, but they have hardly made a start in reducing nonpoint sources and other dispersed sources of pollution. The estuaries of large rivers are tidal, and saltwater flows in and out with the tides, especially during drought.

In each case, the preferred solution is usually to increase the reliability of the available supply, either by structural means such as reservoirs or wells, or by moving water from other more distant sources. The backup approach to assure meeting the highest priority needs is usually water conservation. All of these alternatives are discussed later in this chapter. The use of water from natural waterways is subject to various restrictions. The most important difficulties arise because of water quality.
