Sustainable use of greywater in small-scale Agriculture and gardens in South Africa
Expanded Title:This project was undertaken to provide guidance regarding the conditions under which greywater use should be allowed or propagated and to provide guidance to users about its sustainable use in small-scale agriculture and gardens. Two main products were produced, viz a user friendly Guidance Document and a supporting Technical Background Document which captures the technical information on which the Guidance Document is based and describes the extensive process that was followed to develop the Guidance Document. The Guidance Document is aimed at Municipalities, NGOs and informed members of the public who wish to implement greywater irrigation. The focus of the Guidance Document is to minimise the risks of • illness in handlers of greywater and greywater-irrigated produce, or consumers of greywater-irrigated produce. • reduction in growth or yield of plants/crops irrigated with greywater. • environmental degradation, especially reduction in the ability of soil irrigated with greywater to support plant growth.
