The reuse of wastewater for augmentation of drinking water supplies (a process known as 'indirect potable reuse') is rapidly gaining support as a means of achieving a sustainable water supply and for protection against drought.
In many areas, localized releases of industrial chemicals, pesticides, petroleumadditives such as MTBE. and fuel components such as benzene and hydrazine. have impaired groundwater quality. These groundwater 'plumes' are commonplace, and in many cases impact public water supplies or impedes the redevelopment of potentially valuable land.
