As an input to the design of a Legal Instrument on Water Reuse in Europe, this report recommends minimum quality requirements for water reuse in agricultural irrigation and aquifer recharge based on a risk management approach.
The development of minimum quality requirements for water reuse in agricultural irrigation and aquifer recharge is based on a risk management framework, which is recommended to tackle health and environmental risks and assure a safe use of reclaimed water for agriculture and aquifer recharge. The minimum requirements defined here ensure an appropriate health and environmental protection and thus provide public confidence in reuse practices. This document will contribute to establish a common approach on water reuse across the EU providing clarity, coherence and predictability to market operators, who wish to invest in water reuse in the EU under comparable regulatory conditions.
