World Water Day highlights need for wastewater management

Several organizations and government agencies marked World Water Day on March 22 by highlighting the importance of proper management of the key resource. Specifically, the U.N. Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) highlighted the opportunity treated wastewater represents for agriculture and for improving food security and nutrition, pointing out that, globally, most wastewater is released into the environment without being treated. As a result, in many regions of the world, contaminated water is discharged into rivers and lakes and ends up in oceans.
