Implementation plan for direct and indirect water re-use for domestic purposes – sector discussion document
Expanded Title:The National Strategy for Water Re-use has to date not been broadly communicated and consulted. The consultation process to date focussed on the core NWRSII document and not specifically on the enabling strategies which include, at this stage, the desalination strategy and the water re-use strategy. This project focused specifically on the direct and indirect reuse of domestic treated wastewater as a proactive step to generate a sector discussion document for the progressive implementation of the Water Re-use Strategy. The project developed a plan to bridge the gap between the strategy and implementation of water re-use for domestic water use in consultation with the Department of Water Affairs. The document was informed by a study of international practices compared to the strategic intent of the National Strategy for Water Re-use as well as a locally held workshop. The key strategic interventions recommended in the National Strategy for Water Reuse were unpacked and recommended actions added based on the outcomes of the workshop. These actions can be summarised as follows: (1) Creating an enabling regulatory / legislative environment, (2) Empowering implementation and the implementing agencies, (3) Informing stakeholders, partners and participants including public awareness and education programmes, and (4) Developing appropriate technologies and undertaking baseline studies to determine the status of indirect / direct domestic / potable water re-use, level of public awareness / education, socio-cultural / religious perspectives and values driving water re-use, and environmental impacts of water re-use.
