The recycling of effluents in Australia has developed rapidly in recent years from approximately 9% of water in 2005 it is expected to increase to 30% by 2015. This expansion reflects a significant reduction in available water caused by a prolonged period of below average rainfall, and the availability of viable technologies plus incentives to implement schemes that reduce the dependence on fresh water sources. The initiatives cover a wide range of schemes that can be grouped as large scale projects, integrated water management, irrigation and industrial water uses. Several examples are discussed to illustrate the type, scale and diversity of current projects
