The importance of water reuse in agriculture, mainly direct reuse planned, applied rational, controlling losses and waste, known as "controlled reuse" has gotten the attention on the world stage, due to the scarcity of water for development agriculture in the world. How integrated management of water resources in river basins is intended in this project, through the use of the system of hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP) as a methodology for risk management, including the identification, evaluation and management analysis for the establishment of preventive measures for discharging effluents into aquatic ecosystems, sanitary control in reducing pathogens transmitted by contaminated water and disposal of treated effluent in tropical soils. In this sense, the analysis will be conducted of a technology to produce treated effluent of sewage treatment plants of domestic origin to assess the potential employment in agricultural soils. The research will be conducted in treatment plant esgotodo Lins It is an experimental research for the use of wastewater in agriculture that was created by us and São Paulo University with financial support from FAPESP, FINEP, CNPq and Sabesp. The field trial Lins has an area of 6ha and is installed in an area with raised slightly tilted toward the axis of a drainage. It has a good infrastructure research. The checkpoints will be established according to the treatment processes of each ETE and the risks of human exposure. The results of the analyzes biological and physico-chemical properties of the control points of the WWTP will be presented with quantitative data, averages, minimum and maximum, standard deviation and confidence interval with significance level a d 0:05 considered only the positive and negative correlations in that by Spearman correlation rs ³ 0.50.
