Specifically, the idea of the paper is to find out the existing regulations and guidelines concerning a sustainable wastewater management in the European Union (EU), regarding small-scale on-site wastewater management, and particularly regarding the safe reuse of the source separated wastewater streams in the agriculture. These are identified, first, on the EU level, and second, on a national level. As specific countries for the purpose of studying national legislation three European Union Member States, namely Finland, the Netherlands and Sweden are studied.
