I'm probably not going to be much help here, but I'd prefer "if" to either
"in which" or "where," as I find the latter two constructions somewhat

So instead of "In all applications *where* reclaimed water is to be used..."
or "In all applications *in which* reclaimed water i
prefer "If reclaimed water is to be used..." or "if you are using reclaimed

If I absolutely *had* to choose between "in which" or "where," I'd probably
lean towards "where," because it usually feels less awkward and less formal.

thou hast men about thee that
usually talk of a noun and a verb,
and such abominable words as no
