    Trickle systems can be implemented for domestic effluent disposal and reuse for irrigation of edible crops. This hypothesis was examined in field experiments conducted recently with the treated domestic wastewater of the city of Beer-Sheva, Israel. The results indicate that minimal soil surface and plant contamination was detected under subsurface trickle irrigation and maximal under sprinkler irrigation.
