Abstract

Israel recycles over eighty percent of its sewage and the treated effluents provide local agriculture with over half of its water supply. This is the result of a consistent national policy that was initiated in the 1950s and which remains unprecedented internationally. Some jurisdictions such as Spain and South Australia have begun to expand their utilization wastewater relatively recently, but at present still recycle less than a quarter of the domestic sewage produced.
