Water and wastewater are often used as shorthand for culinary water delivery and sewage transportation and treatment systems, which works well from a utilities and residential/commercial stand point. But industrial water users have a much broader concept of both (clean) water and wastewater. Rather than just potable water, "clean water" can be any water that has not yet been used, no matter what the intended purpose. "Wastewater," then, is any post-use water, not just raw sewage.
