About the course
For the water industry this effectively means effluent and sludge, by-products of sewage treatment, should be viewed as resources to be reused in a beneficial and sustainable manner, rather than wastes requiring disposal. The reuse of these materials involves treating them to a level appropriate for their intended reuse application and using the resulting water (termed reclaimed water) or sludge (termed bio-solids) in a sustainable manner for a beneficial purpose. Beneficial reuse is defined as the sustainable use of reclaimed water or bio-solids in a manner which provides some direct or indirect economic, social or environmental value, while still protecting the environment, public and agricultural (being stock and plant) health.
The concept of beneficial reuse is different from that of wastewater disposal to land. The primary purpose of land disposal is to discharge waste to land in a controlled manner so as not to cause pollution. In contrast, the primary purpose of beneficial reuse is to use what was previously considered “wastewater or sludge” as a resource in a beneficial and safe manner.
