Abstract

Greywater recycling via treatment systems for urban irrigation has great potential to aid in the management of Western Australia's water supply issues. Unfortunately, wastewater is generally viewed in terms of health and disposal issues, rather than looked upon as a valuable resource. Greywater reuse on a domestic scale has the ability to contribute to the sustainable development of Western Australia. This paper examines the capacity of greywater treatment systems to contribute to water savings when included as part of a well-designed urban garden irrigation system. It will be demonstrated that further research needs to be undertaken into developing systems that will enable efficient irrigation of domestic gardens.
