What is the difference in wastewater and water?

Used water from toilets, showers, baths, kitchen sinks, laundries and industrial processes is known as wastewater. Domestic households produce an average of 200–300L of wastewater per person every day! Ninety-nine percent of this wastewater is water, the other one percent is the contaminating waste. 

Non-wastewater is water that has undergone quality testing and follows clean water statutes.
