The use of reclaimed domestic effluents in agriculture has been implemented over the centuries but is now being reviewed as a more serious solution to the increasing scarcity of fresh water resources in many arid and semi-arid regions of the world. Reclaimed effluents addresses reclaimed water that only has had sewage solids removed and is typically used only for surface irrigation of trees, fodder, and fiber crops. A secondary effluent addresses reclaimed water that has had sewage solids removed and has been oxidized and disinfected and is used to irrigate golf courses and cemeteries and provide water for pasture and food crops.

Driven by rapid urbanization and growing wastewater volumes, wastewater is also widely used as a low-cost alternative to conventional irrigation water: it supports livelihoods and generates considerable value in urban and peri-urban agriculture environments.

Concern for human health and the environment are important constraints regarding the reuse of wastewater. The implementation of proven recycling technology solutions is critical to the livelihoods of countless agricultural regions across the globe.

Irricycle provides the knowledge and experience to effectively manage the treatment of agricultural wastewater resources.
