With increasing urban population exerting pressure on the fast dwindling fresh water resources, wastewater reuse is gaining popularity in many parts of the world. Greywater, which is household wastewater without input from toilet waste, has attracted special attention for possibilities of reuse, particularly in urban agriculture, because it has low pathogen content and can therefore be treated easily for reuse.
