This paper provides an overview of waste water treatment process which have been used successfully for reclaiming waste water for agricultural irrigation. The term waste water has been used in this paper to define sewage. Although the focus of this paper is on the treatment of sewage (being the source of waste water), many of the treatment processes discussed could also be used or modified for any source of waste water. A number of case studies are presented to illustrate different process trains that have been successfully used in Australia (Bolivar (South Australia), Hervey Bay (Queensland), Brighton (Tasmania), and Mt. Barker (South Australia)) to provide reclaimed water for agricultural irrigation.
