Potable reuse is a drought-resilient water supply diversification strategy that many cities are considering for supplementing their water supply.

Although many water sources can be demonstrated to contain treated wastewater contributions, discussion of potable reuse is generally confined to the intentional contribution of wastewater return flows for expansion of water availability. Potable reuse is often distinguished between direct and indirect configurations, depending on whether the return flow is released to an intervening environmental buffer....

Although an essential element for living cells, Phosphorus can have serious environmental effects when found in natural or engineering environments.

Major sources of Phosphorus pollution can come from wastewater effluent, commercial chemicals and agricultural waste. Phosphorus minerals, such as struvite and vivianite, can precipitate and form scales in drinking water and wastewater systems.

Although these minerals are problems when left uncontrolled and unmonitored, their recovery is beneficial.

With limited Phosphorus sources...
