Greywater is successfully reused for purposes of toilet flushing and irrigation. The awareness of greywater recycling varies across the world, with a noticeable intensity and understanding of the subject in areas encountering sustained pressures on the water supply. The reuse of treated greywater helps to ease the increasing burdens on global water supplies. Legislation in relation to greywater enables governments to regulate the effluent quality as well as protecting the public from the health risks associated with greywater. Many countries are beginning to realise the immediate demands on water supplies, and are slowly developing guidelines for the reuse of greywater amongst alternative water saving methods.
