This report is an attempt to compile the published quantitative data available concerning the health effects associated with direct and indirect reuse of treated municipal wastewater for potable purposes. The assembled information includes data on the effectiveness of conventional water and wastewater treatment and disposal operations in reducing public health contaminant concentrations, as well as data on the transport of these contaminants through the environment back to man. Wastewater treatment processes evaluated include conventional secondary treatment and tertiary processes. Wastewater disposal techniques evaluated include direct discharge to fresh surface waters and land application.
