The 2018 International Residential Code (IRC), published by the International Code Council (ICC) defines reclaimed water as: ‘Nonpotable water that has been derived from the treatment of wastewater by a facility or system licensed or permitted to produce water meeting the jurisdiction’s water requirements for its intended uses. Also known as “Recycled water.”’
Water safety in buildings, published by the World Health Organization in 2011, defines recycled water as: ‘Water that has been treated so that its quality is suitable for particular specified purposes, such as irrigation, toilet flushing or possibly drinking (WHO, 2006b). Sources of recycled water include sewage and greywater.’
