With the advent of extensive urban water recycling through dual reticulation, there is potential for cross connection between water distribution systems. Whilst water utilities provide extensive barriers that ensure the safety of recycled water designated for non-potable domestic use (e.g. toilet flushing and domestic irrigation), there is nonetheless a requirement to detect such instances to maintain public confidence and acceptance of recycled water initiatives.
