Priest, G., Anda, M.ORCID: 0000-0001-7398-4192, Mathew, K. and Ho, G.E.ORCID: 0000-0001-9190-8812 (2004) Domestic greywater reuse as part of a total urban water management strategy. In: Sustainability of water resources : proceedings of the International Conference, 13 - 14 November 2002, Perth, Western Australia



Of the potable water supplied for domestic use, about twenty percent is discharged as "greywater" from laundries and bathrooms. This amounts to around 300 litres per household, per day, for transport, treatment and disposal via the sewerage system. As most people are aware water is a key yet limited resource in Western Australia. Management of this valuable resource is not only a Natural Resource Management and environmental issue, it is also an important economic issue and its management has significant social implications. Domestic reuse of greywater onsite provides the opportunity to aid in water conservation and provide a number of benefits to the community.
