Abstract text The treated effluent by a simplified system was checked to be reused in agricultural practices. We evaluated its efficiency to removal pathogens resistant forms. The system removed 100% of helminth eggs, however, we identified 93 ± 92 cystsL−1 in the final effluent. Thus, there is a necessity to disinfection step after the sand filter, to guarantee the agriculture safe reuse of this effluent.
