Water supply and wastewater services are two connected components in an urban water system. They are in most cases operated separately towards sub-system optima. By recognising and enhancing their connections, an integrated management strategy would deliver system-wide optimisation with tremendous economic and environmental benefits. This project developed and demonstrated an integrated and innovative strategy, and the associated science and technologies, to achieve multiple beneficial uses of iron salts in an urban water system.
