Market Standards & Requirements

The health risks associated with reusing Greywater and sewage water have long been recognized but regulatory guidelines propose a flexible approach of risk assessment and risk management linked to health-based targets that can be established at a level that is realistic under local conditions. The approach is to be backed-up by strict monitoring measures.

Guidelines are built around a health component and an implementation component. Health protection is dependent on both elements.

Health component:
  • Establishes a risk level associated with identified health hazards
  • Defines a level of health protection that is expressed as a health-based target for each risk
  • Identifies health protection measures that, used collectively, can achieve the specified health-based target
Implementation component:
  • Establishes monitoring and system assessment procedures
  • Defines institutional and oversight responsibilities
  • Requires system documentation
  • Requires confirmation by independent surveillance
