The purpose of the study was to apply performance indicators on wastewater reuse in the Palestinian Territories (Gaza) to assess on the impact of waste water and grey water projects on the ambient environment, labor costs and consumers in terms of technical, socio-economic and environmental aspects leading to safe and productive use of wastewater for crop production systems at the farm level and similar use of grey water at the household level. The study was conducted in Gaza in the period of 1 November 2012 to 1 August 2013. A field survey covered the main groups of interest for using treated wastewater, and questionnaires were designed for the target group. The questionnaires were distributed to 30 beneficiaries from Al-Zaitoun District and Khan Younis Governorate, filled, collected, sorted, and documented. Descriptive statistics were calculated from the collected data. Interesting result of data analysis that addressed key factors are discussed in this paper. Most farmers were willing to use treated wastewater in principle, and so need to be more educated and trained in the reuse of reclaimed water in terms of social, economic, environmental issues
