Water Recycling Plant

The water recycling process utilizes very basic physical, biological and chemical principles to remove contaminants from water. Use of mechanical or physical systems to treat wastewater is generally referred to as primary treatment.

What is recycled water?

Water recycling is the process of taking effluent (wastewater and sewage) and treating it so that it can be reused. For potable (drinkable) use, the recycled water has to be treated to a sufficiently high level that it's suitable for human consumption.

Extending Water's Life Cycle

Aqua Breath is a leader and pioneer in wastewater reuse, having completed some of the first large-scale projects in both industrial and municipal reuse. Wastewater Recycling has gained lot of visibility due to acute scarcity of potable water resources almost globally. Be it municipal sewage or industrial wastewater, the focus is to treat these wastewaters and recycle them as process water for industrial/irrigation purposes if not for potable use. In certain cases, even zero liquid discharge is the mandate from regulatory authorities. On one hand it is regulatory drivers pushing for maximizing wastewater recycle, on the other hand industry is also taking pro-active initiatives to implement wastewater recycle projects.

Recycling and reuse of desalinated seawater has not been utilized to a great extent. Seawater is normally desalinated, either by membrane or thermal means, utilized for either municipal or industrial reasons, treated, and returned back to the sea. Economics will always drive when and where new technology is applied. To this extent, capital, operating, and maintenance costs are qualitatively discussed which demonstrate the feasibility of such water reuse technology.

The recycling process

There's no standard 'off the shelf' process for recycling water — each method is specific to local requirements and environments, with different technologies and very diverse natural water catchment characteristics — but, generally speaking, indirect potable reuse involves the following steps:

  • Effluent gets treated at existing wastewater treatment plants before it reaches the recycling plant. The recycled water is then mixed with the natural water supply.
  • After going through micro filters, the water undergoes a reverse osmosis process, which involves forcing the water molecules across a dense plastic film. Water can pass through the film, but other molecules (even tiny salt molecules) and microbes (including viruses and bacteria) can't.
  • As an added precaution the water undergoes oxidation and disinfection, using hydrogen peroxide and very strong ultraviolet light.
  • The recycled water is then added to a reservoir or groundwater aquifer, where it can be stored and blended with the regular water supply.
  • Before being put into the drinking water system, the blended recycled and regular water also undergoes the normal drinking water treatment process.

There's a difference between this kind of planned reuse — with advanced water treatment and risk management — and incidental reuse. In some river systems, towns upstream discharge their treated sewage into the river and towns further downstream draw water from the same river.

How used to Recycled Water

Recycled water is most commonly used for no potable (not for drinking) purposes, such as agriculture, landscape, public parks, and golf course irrigation. ... These projects include recharging ground water aquifers and augmenting surface water reservoirs with recycled water.


With national guidelines on recycling water for drinking established in 2008, and with increasing demand on our water supply, recycling is going to become more common. The aim of the guidelines is to make sure recycling is done safely, without being sidetracked by the debate over whether recycling is a good or bad idea. The guidelines are aimed at decision makers and project managers, and explain what the risks are and how to manage them.
