the Wastewater Database
 
 

Developed by the Water Quality and Environment Group, the Wastewater Database contains information on wastewater production, treatment, re-use, as well as economic information provided by member states. Published data in peer-reviewed papers, workshop/conference/meeting proceedings, and FAO's related databases such as AQUASTAT and FAOSTAT are also included.

The Database information is sorted by region and country containing fields on wastewater production, treatment technologies, and financial/economical parameters by country. For each data field, original Reference is available as well as the Data Reference Year which corresponds to the year of data collection, not necessarily the reference publication year. A Glossary containing the definitions of each data parameter is also given. A Comments/Notes field contains additional information pertinent to the data.
