This project conducted an overview of the historical context, application, and communication of bio-analytical tools for recycled water quality assessment in Australia. The focus was initially on the technical development of bio-analytical tools and expanded to encompass the societal as well as technical issues posing a barrier to consideration of recycled water. Of particular significance was the subject area involving risk perception and trust in the water provider. A set of FAQs developed improves understanding of water quality assessment using bio-analytical tools.
