Climate change and environmental pollution make saving water resources crucial also in the Baltic Sea Region. Due to climate change and increasing pollution of the environment, freshwater has become more valuable in the Region. Despite the extensive initial treatment, freshwater is still discharged after single use in many countries. This practice wastes money, energy, and human labour, which could be reduced with water recovery from wastewater. However, such practices pose some challenges due to specific requirements for reclaimed water quality. The goal is to reduce the risk of the potentially harmful impact of untreated WWTP effluent on the environment and human health. Reclaimed water can be used by local authorities and private entities for various purposes, such as street cleaning, car washes, fountains and pond recharge, irrigation of recreational area, plant breeding, and, after proper treatment, also for domestic use or drinking water. The key is to develop solutions for the recovery of safe water, free of pathogens and micropollutants, with the right amount of nutrients. Overcoming the “yuck factor” in society is also crucial. The risk assessment is a necessary tool for creating effective protective barriers. This project is intended to address these challenges to accelerate policymaking, which would facilitate implementation of water reuse in the cities of Europe. This good practice addresses circular economy and SDG #6 “Clean water and sanitation for all”.
