Abstract: This study examines localized treatment of domestic waste water for use in irrigation in Indian scenario. Use of domestic waste water in partially treated or untreated forms for irrigation is suggested to mitigate waste water disposal problem and meet irrigation water needs. Also nutrients present in water get recycled, saving on chemical fertilizers rather than polluting water ways and creating conditions for eutrophication. But care needs to be taken to avoid entry of hazardous chemicals, parasites and pathogens into food chain through crops and also pollution of underlying ground water. This paper reviews sustainable and economical technological options for collection and treatment of domestic waste water in Indian scenario.
