An extensive review of the literature was made to assess the present state of scientific knowledge and technology regarding water pollution problems associated with the practice of irrigation and occurring in irrigation return flow. The effect of irrigation on the subsequent reuse of water by other users was considered. Feasibility studies have been conducted on treating and disposing of return water. A need was found for economic research explicitly concerned with irrigation return flow. The legal aspects of reuse and water quality of irrigation return flows were examined and the recommendation made for more intensive study of the inseparable nature of quality-quantity management in relation to institutional, economic, and legal restrictions. The article contains 245 references and a separate bibliography of 700 entries.
