Abstract: The authors compare design aspects of modeling reclaimed water use with monthly and daily water balance protocols and review state regulations pertaining to use of reclaimed water. The results indicate that monthly time steps and synthetic rainfall distributions may be inappropriate, and that regulations based on monthly time steps or annual rainfall totals are poor permitting criteria.
