The Best Ground Water Treatment Methods
Many homes and businesses depend on ground water or surface water as a vital water source. Unfortunately, much of this water has not been filtered through municipal water treatment and distribution technology. This means that the water many people consume, cook with, and use for basic hygienecan contain potentially harmful particles, including pathogens, tiny organic matter, sediment, industrial pollutants, dissolved poisons like arsenic, and more. Even worse, without access to a ground water treatment system,...
Solutions for Safe Drinking Water Through Biological Water Treatments
Most people across the U.S. expect to turn on their faucets and have immediate access to clean drinking water. The truth is, it wasn’t until 1974 that Congress passed the Safe Water Drinking Act with the goal of regulating the nation’s public water supply. Over the years, the SWDA has been amended to include water sources as well, such as rivers, lakes, springs and groundwater wells that serve 25 individuals or more. Americans depend on more than 170,000 public water systems around the country to...
Crumbling Concrete Water Networks Linked to Common Water Treatment Additive
Concrete distribution and sewer networks are being corroded at an alarming rate partly because of a commonly used additive in the domestic drinking water and wastewater treatment process according to published reports in the journal Science. In countries throughout the world from industrialized nations like Australia and the USA to developing nations like Colombia, Ghana and the Philippines, the lifespan of these concrete pipe networks is being reduced by levels upwards of 90%. Urban societies in particular are...
