It is generally accepted that wastewater used in agriculture is justified from an agronomic and economic point of view, but care must be taken to minimize adverse health and environmental impacts. Particularly, in order to guarantee the public health safeguard and the environment protection, wastewaters reused for irrigation purposes need to reach different qualitative requisites depending on the specific applications and the select irrigation technique. The latter fall into three categories: surface, sprinkler, and drip irrigation.
For example, many cooling towers, used in oil refineries and power generating plants relying on limited freshwater supplies, recycle water as many as eight times before discharging (blowing down) the concentrated brine to waste. Some industrial effluents are used for irrigation of landscaping or for process water at another industry. Industrial effluents can contain a large variety of pollutants such as heavy metals, toxic elements, and high content of organic matter. Where the cost of water is high enough, industries find it more economical to segregate the different wastewater streams and to treat and reuse water from different processes.
Although there is no universal definition of marginal quality water, for all practical purposes it can be defined as water that possesses certain characteristics, which have the potential to cause problems when used for an intended purpose (FAO, 1992). A not exhaustive list of the different categories of marginal water includes seawater and brackish water, domestic sewage water, irrigation drainage water, urban flood water, deep aquifer water, water found in remote areas whose exploitation requires high investment and high operational costs, and any other water that cannot be used directly in a safe beneficial manner.
