Rapid population and urban expansion is placing ever greater demands on water resources. And municipal wastewater is creating serious pollution problems when discharged directly into surface waters. After eight years of interdisciplinary research, the authors conclude that diversion of wastewater to the forest ecosystem should help to eliminate or alleviate many disposal and pollution problems. In some instances it might even provide such secondary benefits as increased recharge of groundwater reservoirs, increased growth of vegetation, and amelioration of barren unproductive sites.
