This paper was aimed at reviewing the management, discharge and recycling of wastewater. In addition, the challenges and remediation processes for wastewater discharge were also discussed. Water is a substance of great importance to humans, animals and plants. Although a larger part of the earth is covered by water, its use has always been limited in terms of availability, quality and quantity. Water treatments are mainly for the removal of waste product from water in such a way that it can meet the standard for consumption. Environmental sustainability entails making decisions and actions in the relevance of protecting the natural world, with importance of preserving the competency of the environment to support human life. The increasing discharge of wastewater due to increase in population has led to the deterioration of the environment and threat to human health. Wastewater reuse is important in the irrigation of agricultural areas cause of the maintenance of water reservoirs and plants with nutrient which makes the request for fertilizers low. Generally of the considerable developments in water reuse have occurred in waterless regions of the world. One of the most potential for water reprocess is to restore freshwater burden of industries. The method that helps to minimize the discharge of residuals such as recycling wastewater, remediation measures, environmental awareness and sewage pollution control.
