Recycling Black Water
2.3 Recycling Black Water
Black water is waste from toilets or kitchens and can present risks to human health, the community and the environment as a whole if not treated correctly.
Small scale treatment systems are generally uneconomic and impractical to manage/maintain.
Water from treatment centres if controlled to a consistent standard may be used for similar applications as grey water.
