Notes: Relative risk of illness (gastroenteritis) to persons drinking water from each of the reuse scenarios relative to de facto reuse (Scenario 1). The smaller the number, the lower the relative risk of the reuse applications for each organism. For example, in Scenario 2, the risk of illness due to Salmonella is estimated to be less than 1/100th of the risk due to Salmonella in Scenario 1.
