This paper examines some of the main aspects involved in the identification of essential features of the plants which utilise treated municipal wastewater to irrigate agricultural land. On the basis of a discussion of central issues regarding water supply in a large irrigation district with a semi-arid climate localised in West-Southern Italy, it provides an outline for potential intervention oriented towards the integration of secondary effluents in the existing hydraulic network. Particular attention is paid to the adoption of simplified processing treatment systems and the utilisation of wastewater subject to partial tertiary treatment.

Abstract

This paper examines some of the main aspects involved in the identification of essential features of the plants which utilise treated municipal wastewater to irrigate agricultural land. On the basis of a discussion of central issues regarding water supply in a large irrigation district with a semi-arid climate localised in West-Southern Italy, it provides an outline for potential intervention oriented towards the integration of secondary effluents in the existing hydraulic network. Particular attention is paid to the adoption of simplified processing treatment systems and the utilisation of wastewater subject to partial tertiary treatment.
