Toelichting (Engels) Reuse of domestic waste water for irrigation could play an important role in water resource management. Waste water is already often indirectly reused in agriculture by irrigating with surface water in which treated waste water is discharged and diluted. In direct water reuse, waste water is treated to such an extent that it is suitable for irrigation. The European Commission has published a proposed regulation for direct water reuse for irrigation with the aim to support responsible reuse of waste water for irrigation purposes by harmonized minimum quality requirements and risk management. The proposed regulation also specifies processes related to permits and obligations on the sharing of information on reuse. Researchers from KWR Watercycle Research Institute have evaluated the performance of the proposed regulation in the Dutch context, focusing on microbial and chemical risks, and the performance of the regulation for water reuse in the Netherlands.
