Can the use of wastewater for irrigation be a more efficient way to allocate water resources for competing uses? If yes, how do we deal with microbial and heavy metal toxicity of wastewater?

Yes of course since it is what I have developed for now about ten year.
With the whole beginning I was made insult for this application. I was going to infect the environment and by deduction to destroy all the terrestrial population.
Now I am obliged to beat me because one cannot use the waste water rejection anyhow under any situation and condition.
Any rejection in nature must be “biological”. is this case of waste waters NOT of course that NOT.
And that becomes dangerous bus of the sorcerer's apprentices do it in all ignorance of caracterisitic biological of a waste water effluent.
It is necessary that the waste water emission is “Biological”
That the process of treatment is “Biological”
Then and only in this configuratioin there is a possibility of rejection in the environment. But there is still an obligatory condition. The “Biological” process of treatment will not have affected any the diffuse pollution contained naturally in waste waters.
This rejection is thus still in polluting matter.
For this reason I rise against ideas launched to goes quickly, free, but very dangerous for the human condition.
All its ideas do not take absolutely into account the “Biological” characteristic of a pollution. Is it Biological? isn't to it not?
