In the face of regional drought and with the demand from increasing populations, we must be prepared to respond to the increasing need for water supplies. Surface and underground water sources no longer offer reliable and sustainable supplies. We must focus our attention on increasing the reuse of treated wastewater as a viable alternative to conventional water supplies. Wastewater must no longer be thought of in a negative sense, but instead must be valued as a renewable resource. This paper presents the efforts of a central highlands city in Vietnam to reuse treated wastewater, thereby reducing dependence on traditional water supplies.
