Re: reuse of wastewater

Esther asks:
Dear p2techs,

We are studing the use of wastewater from treatment plant for irrigation
of vegetables for human use.
I would be very grateful if somebody could tell me which parameters 
have to be considered, specially in reference to the Boron 
(concentration allowed, problems,etc).
Any information will be wellcomed.
Thanks in advance for your help,
