Standardization of water reuse of any kind and for any purpose. It covers both centralized and decentralized or on-site water reclamation, and direct and indirect reuse applications, taking into consideration the potential for unintentional exposure or ingestion. It includes technical, economic, environmental and societal aspects of water reuse. Water reuse comprises a sequence of the stages and operations involved in collection, conveyance, processing, storage, distribution, consumption, drainage and other handling of wastewater, and treated effluent, including water that is reused in repeated, cascaded and recycled ways. The scope of ISO/PC 253 (Treated wastewater reuse for irrigation) is merged therein.


  • the limits of allowable water quality in water reuse, which should be determined by the governments, WHO and other relevant competent organizations.
  • all aspects of ISO/TC 224 scope (service activities relating to drinking water supply systems and wastewater systems -- Quality criteria of the service and performance indicators)
  • methods for the measurement of water quality, which are covered by ISO/TC 147.
