The major pathways of water reuse include irrigation, industrial use, surface water replenishment and ground water recharge. The quantity of water transferred through each pathway depends on the watershed characteristics, climatic and geohydrology factors, the degree of water utilization for various purposes, the degree of direct and indirect water reuse. Water reuse loop should be depending on public health criteria, Engineering, economics, aesthetics and more importantly public acceptance. Considering the complexity of waste water reuse projects following aspects are to be taken care for successful implementation of project for reuse of waste water. Here the case study is taken for common effluent treatment plant at Umraya, Padra, Gujarat which is running efficiently and experiments show that waste water can be reused. The waste water was collected and examined for almost one year. The lab scale RO treatment was given to waste water and after receiving good results, the design was suggested to that plant. The design is made with the use of Hydranautics design software version 2012. In this paper main focus is on the design part with software. We have to give input parameters and with all details we are getting design in pdf format. It gives details for membrane stages, pass, flux, power etc. which is very useful for filed implementation. It shows that software gives accurate design with least possible error and user friendly so world while accepted.
