Abstract

In this study an assessment of the factors that influence the degree to which a city or community would undertake wastewater treatment and use the output for various purposes is investigated. In assessing these issues two contrasting case studies of wastewater treatment and recycling are studied namely Hyderabad, India (representing a developing country context) and Melbourne, Australia (representing a developed country context). An improved understanding of both these wastewater systems, across different economic and social contexts was found and placed within a single decision making framework.
