  The University of MelbourneDepartment of Civil and Environmental EngineeringInternational Technologies Center (IDTC)4!"#44 $esearch %ro&ect 'ssessing sustainability of asteater reuse systems inictoria *y +yoti Upadhyaya,tudent no- !.!!/This report is submitted in partial fulfillment of the re0uirements for the degree of Master of Engineering ,cience+une 112  i  ABSTRACT This report provides details of developing development of a set of sustainability indicators (SI) to assess the sustainability of wastewater reuse systems in Victoria, by desktop study and theoretical analysis.Identifying impediments to wastewater reuse and interpreting concept of sustainability in terms of wastewater reuse revealed that ecept the T!" approach, consumers involvement in decision#making, institutional foundation and system approach are the  building blocks for a sustainable system. The two case studies ($onald tree plantation and %illaura "ake discharge) eamined the applicability of the SI in identifying the sustainability level of the systems and led to the refinement of the SI.  ii DECLARATION I hereby declare that this thesis is solely my own work and to the best of my knowledge and belief, does not contain any material published or written by anybody else, ecept where due reference has been given in the body of the thesis. &urthermore, this report is  prepared as a re'uirement for partial fulfillment of the aster of ngineering Science course and has not been used for any other course re'uirement in any university. *yoti +padhyaya- th  *une --/  iii ACKNOWELEDGEMENTS I would like to epress my sincere gratitude to my research supervisor $r 0raham oore, Senior "ecturer, I$T1, +niversity of elbourne not only for his ecellent supervisory role but also for his continuous support during the difficult times in the course of study.
