wastewater renovation and conservation cycle
Glossary of "Environmental Science: Earth as a Living Planet (2nd ed.)" by Botkin & Keller (1998)
- Practice of applying wastewater to the land. In some systems treated wastewater is applied to agricultural crops, and as the water infiltrates through the soil layer it is naturally purified. Reuse of the water is by pumping it out of the ground for municipal or agricultural uses.
