Where can I find International Water Reuse Standards and Regulations ?

1465 Views

Hello everybody,

Anyone know where I can find some Standards and Regulations about Water Reuse for agriculture and industries? I need water reuse standards for European, Middle east and Asian regions for my new project.

In Brazil we only have regulations for agriculture and secondary water reuse. Industrial regulation is taking so long to get approved from governmental agencies....

I would like to thank you all for your kind attention. 

Warm Regards! 

Léo.

There are no international water reuse standards that I know of...each country and region generally have their own regulations prepared by political entrepreneurs.....we have technologies that are based on North American high standards. WD

I think you have had good recomendation. In Brazil there some agencies that are trying to fix some parameters and you could also look at CIRRA (Centro Internacional de Reuso de Água) that is located at USP and there are also some parameters at FIESP and SINDUSCON - SP.

USEPA Guidelines for Water Reuse

The US Environmental Protection Agency’s Guidelines for Water Reuse represents the international standard for best practices in water reuse. The document was developed under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the global consultancy CDM Smith.

The Guidelines also provide links to state reuse guidelines and regulations. Please e-mail updates to info@watereuse.org.

Hello professional water/wastewater treatment fellows!

Thank you all for your kind answers to my question!

Actually, I found that ISO (Internationa Standardzation Organization) is currently working on a international standart for urban reuse of water (ISO/TS/P 232 – Treated wastewater re-use in urban areas - a proposal for a new field of technical activity on Treated wastewater re-use in urban areas submitted by SAC - China). I think that very soon we shall have a release.

Big hug fellows!

Li seems to me that there does not exist any international regulation concerning water. It is specific to each country. To the international level one limits oneself to say that one should not do this or that.
Your question questions on water, but it should be known that there are several types of water.
domestic waste waters, industrial waste waters, waste waters of chemical industry, waste waters of the stations of household wastes, waste waters of agriculture. Which interests you more.
lyseconcept can give you information about domestic waste waters.
