Wastewater treatment broadly describes water treatment preparing water no longer needed
or suitable for its most recent use for return to the water cycle with minimal environmental
issues. Wastewater treatment is distinguished from water treatment by focus on disposal
rather than use. Water reclamation implies avoidance of disposal by use of wastewater as a
raw water supply. Treatment means removing impurities from water being treated; and
some methods of treatment are applicable to both water and wastewater. Production of
waste brine, however, may discourage wastewater treatment removing dissolved inorganic
solids from water by methods like ion exchange, reverse osmosis, and distillation.
