Introduction Water scarcity poses serious economic, social and even political concerns in all of its aspects. Many irrigated areas around the world are experiencing water shortages due to severe factors, such as climate change and ground water pollution [1] . Most of the water consumption in many countries is allocated to agricultural practices, which consume 66% of the available water [2] .

Countries suffering from water shortages are forced to use non-conventional resources, mainly water harvesting and treated wastewater. In Lebanon, like in many other Mediterranean countries, demands on water resources for households, commercial, industrial, and agricultural use are on the increase due to rapid population growth and demographic shifts [4] [5] . Harmful effects are mainly due to associated pathogens and other undesirable constituents depending on the source [8] [9] . 2. 2.1. Figure 1. Figure 2. 2.2. 2.3. 2.4. 2.5. 2.6. 2.7. 3. 3.1.

COMMISSION EUROPEENNE 29/04/15 Environment: Commission takes FRANCE to Court over poor waste water treatment. The European Commission is taking France to the EU Court of Justice for not complying with EU legislation on urban waste water treatment. Some 17 agglomerations are listed as not having waste water treatment up to EU standards. Untreated urban waste water can endanger the health of European citizens and the environment.

The European Commission has to ensure that the level of treatment of urban waste water can be guaranteed throughout the European Union. France was first warned in 2009 about this particular case, which concerns areas with a population equivalent in a range between 2000 and 15000. EU legislation on urban waste water treatment dates back to 1991, but provided long implementation deadlines. If, by the time the case goes to trial, the Commission receives new information demonstrating that any of the above agglomerations are now in compliance, they will be removed from the list.

Reports from different locations globally have linked microbial outbreaks with agricultural reuse of wastewater. This article reviews the epidemiological evidence and health risks associated with this practice, aiming towards evidence-based conclusions. Exposure pathways that were addressed in this review included those relevant to agricultural workers and their families, consumers of crops, and residents close to areas irrigated with wastewater (partially treated or untreated).

GEORGIA TECH 30/10/18 Pilot Project Will Use Campus Wastewater to Grow Vegetables. Campus and Community Earth and Environment By Kenna Simmons | October 30, 2018 • Atlanta, GA Click image to enlarge A pilot project at Georgia Tech’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering will use wastewater nutrients to grow produce on campus to test a model for decentralizing production of vegetables such as these.

Even if you do your best to eat local, chances are most of the fruits and vegetables you consume come from far away -- especially if you live in a big city. “The overarching goal is trying to figure out a way to use wastewater nutrients to grow produce in urban areas so we can decentralize vegetable production,” Chen said. “Currently we treat wastewater by taking all the nutrients from it,” said Chen. The proposed anaerobic membrane biological treatment process will transfer organic contaminants into biogas and remove pathogens such as E. coli to ensure food safety, but the nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, for example) will remain.

Introduction Campylobacter is one of the most common causes of food-borne bacterial disease in humans worldwide. In the European Union, the most commonly species detected associated with campylobacteriosis are C. jejuni, followed by C. coli [1,2].

These thermophilic species asymptomatically colonize the intestinal mucosa of a wide variety of birds and mammals, including food-producing animals [3,4], which explains their frequent encounter as zoonotic, food-borne pathogens. The observed increase in the proportion of Campylobacter isolates with reduced susceptibility to antimicrobials, particularly against quinolones and macrolides, is a cause of concern [5,6] as this could have serious potential consequences for public health [7,8]. Despite the fact that poultry products are considered the major source of Campylobacter infection, multiple other sources exist, including untreated drinking water [1,5]. 2. 2.1. 2.2. 2.3. 2.4.

IRRIGATION AND DRAINAGE 14/12/17 Socio‐Economic Interest of Treated Wastewater Reuse in Agricultural Irrigation and Indirect Potable Water Reuse: Clermont‐Ferrand and Cannes Case Studies' Cost–Benefit Analysis.

Unlike many structuring projects, treated wastewater reuse projects are rarely subjected to economic analysis. And when they are, the social and environmental benefits and costs are often not accounted for or are not properly quantified. Here we show that the widely used cost–benefit analysis method showing the profitability of a project from the whole of the community's point of view can be adapted to treated wastewater reuse projects. The remaining evaluation difficulties are more due to the system's complexity rather than its methodological limits. Indeed, the operator must be able to understand, formalize and imagine constraints and risks associated with different domains such as urbanism, agriculture, climate, hydrology and trade.

Remaining uncertainties over key parameter values can, however, be properly considered through scenarios and/or stochastic approaches. J. Appl. Biosci. 2013. Heavy metal and associated antibiotic resistance of fecal coliforms, fecal streptococci and pathogens iso.

Journal of Cleaner Production Volume 195, 10 September 2018, Sustainability assessment of wastewater reuse alternatives using the evidential reasoning approach. Wastewater reuse is a necessity especially in arid and semiarid regions. Assessing wastewater reuse applications and the required tertiary treatment technologies with regard to sustainable development issues is a multi-criteria decision making problem that involves a number of conflicting objectives and various types of uncertainties. In this study, the evidential reasoning (ER) approach which is a multi-criteria decision making method for dealing with problems having both quantitative and qualitative criteria under uncertainties, is used for prioritizing the wastewater reuse applications as well as wastewater treatment technologies.

The proposed ER approach for sustainability assessment of wastewater reuse alternatives consists of five main steps: 1. Identification of potential wastewater reuse alternatives (including wastewater reuse applications and tertiary treatment technologies). 2.

Journal of Environmental Management Available online 20 April 2017 Interrelationships of metal transfer factor under wastewater reuse and soil pollution.

The transfer of heavy metals under soil pollution wastewater reuse was studied in a Greenhouse experiment using a randomized block design, including 6 treatments of heavy metals mixtures composed of Zn, Mn, Cd, Co, Cu, Cr, Ni, and Pb, where each metal was taking part in the mixture with 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 mg/kg respectively, in four replications. The Beta vulgaris L (beet) was used as a test plant.

It was found that the metal transfer factors were statistically significantly related to the: (i) DTPA extractable soil metals, (ii) the soil pollution level as assessed by the pollution indices, (iii) the soil pH, (iv) the beet dry matter yield and (v) the interactions between the heavy metals in the soil. It was concluded that the Transfer Factor is subjected to multifactor effects and its real nature is complex, and there is a strong need for further study for the understanding of its role in metal-plant relationships.

MEATSITE 04/04/13 Water Reuse in Poultry Processing Now Addressed in the HACCP Programme. Featured Articles Water Reuse in Poultry Processing Now Addressed in the HACCP Programme 04 April 2013 The USDA-Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) indicated that if water is to be reused in a poultry processing facility, then this reuse water must be accounted for in the plant's HACCP programme.

This requirement may cause some difficulties as processors consider the associated hazard analyses, according to Dr Scott Russell of the Department of Poultry Science at the University of Georgia. When water is used to chill or rinse broiler carcasses, fat, protein, blood, faecal material and ingesta may be deposited into the water. Pathogenic bacteria commonly found on broiler carcasses may end up in the water as well.

To prevent processors from using spray or chiller rinse waters directly upstream as reuse water, and thereby possibly contaminating chickens, USDA has enacted new regulations described in CFR 416.2 (g) (3). What impact might the new ruling have on processors? Figure 1. Figure 2. MEATSITE 04/04/13 Water Reuse in Poultry Processing Now Addressed in the HACCP Programme.

MURDOCH UNIVERSITY VIA PHYS_ORG 02/04/18 Scientists invent cheaper and greener wastewater treatment. A new energy-efficient process developed at Murdoch University is set to revolutionise wastewater treatment by significantly reducing the industry's electricity consumption. Dr Ralf Cord-Ruwisch and Dr Liang Cheng, together with two Phd students have designed a new wastewater treatment system that requires less than half the electricity to operate, and a new company is being formed to commercialise the technology. With current wastewater treatment technology in Australia more than 100 years old, Dr Cord-Ruwisch believes the time is right for a more energy-efficient approach. "At present, the majority of the electricity consumed by the nation's wastewater treatment plants is used to oxygenate wastewater as part of the treatment process, and this design has the potential to revolutionise this," Dr Cord-Ruwisch said.

"This is not a very energy-efficient process, as these air bubbles are only about 20 per cent oxygen and the rest of it is nitrogen, which isn't required.

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-001633-17 Ecological status of rivers. In its answer to my Question E-005707/2016, the Commission stated that ‘in Galicia, as in the rest of the EU, there is still a long way to go before the achievement of the objectives of the Water Framework Directive’. It also indicated that in the 2014-2020 period, the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) would finance wastewater treatment plants and other infrastructures using almost EUR 88 million within the framework of the 2014-2020 ERDF Galicia regional operational programme, and that it would earmark EUR 66 million for improving wastewater treatment in Galicia.

It highlighted, in this regard, the O Souto wastewater treatment plant in Santiago. Following up on these investments, can the Commission indicate what progress has been made so far?

The Commission is aware of the issue, having brought infringement proceedings against Spain before the ECJ for breaching the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive. On 14 April 2011 the ECJ delivered a judgment regarding the Valle de Güímar and other urban agglomerations (Case C-343/10). Five years later, the Commission had to bring Spain before the ECJ again for delaying the adoption of appropriate measures in 17 agglomerations, including Valle de Güímar.

Environmental organisations estimate that around 500 billion litres of untreated waste water are dumped into the sea at Valle de Güímar every year. Does the Commission have any figures on the matter?
