The techniques that involve such comparative assessments are especially convenient for water resources with different quality characteristics. The reuse of the treated effluent of wastewater treatment plants in irrigation is a commonly applied method in semiarid regions such as the Mediterranean where water is a scarce commodity. However, these effluents must be comparatively assessed with other Sources of irrigation waters to evaluate the pros and cons of their application particularly in irrigating edible crops.
