  • How to Deal with Arsenic in Drinking Water

    Thanks to recent developments in technology, daily drinking water undergoes a rigorous treatment process for water to be consumable. This is because most ground and natural river waters have a chemical in them called arsenic. Arsenic is a metallic chemical element that is found commonly among rocks and sulfur in the Earth’s crust. Arsenic is known for getting into your drinking water from ...

  • Advanced Water Treatment Technologies May Bring Purified Water to San Diego

    'In four years, half of San Diego may be filling its glasses with tap water that once ran through its toilets,' reported the San Diego Union-Tribune recently. A plan to mix 'repurified water' with the City's raw drinking water reservoir could become a reality, thanks to the wonders of water treatment technology. Such a possibility elicits various reactions including disgust, marvel and fear. ...

  • Distillation treatment and removal of contaminants from drinking water

    Distillation treatment typically removes most of the dissolved materials. In addition, the boiling process kills biological contaminants. Nevertheless, there are certain volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds that may not be removed by distillation (CDPH 2009). Organic compounds that boil at temperatures greater than the boiling point of water (some pesticides) can be effectively removed ...

  • Guide to Removing Arsenic from Drinking Water

    It’s said that the human body is made up of almost 60 percent water. Is the water you’re putting into your body pure? Many people are unaware of the chemicals and compounds that are seeping into their drinking water and wreaking havoc on their internal systems. Arsenic, for example, can be found in many different areas. In the Northeast especially, well water is more likely to be ...

  • Making your drinking water safe with biological water treatment

    As society becomes more environmentally conscious, it is important that your community is provided with its natural necessities in an eco-friendly manner. One of these natural necessities includes adequate drinking water. Many companies use chemical treatment methods to help cleanse and purify water resources, but such methods are often at the expense of your local environment. Some water ...

  • Biodegradation of multiple nitrosamines by the Bacillus species LT1C in drinking water biofilters

    To better clarify the biodegradation mechanism of nitrosamines at low concentrations and characterize the nitrosamine-reducing strains isolated from biological activated carbon (BAC) filters in drinking water treatment plants. The nitrosamine-reducing bacterial culture Bacillus species LT1C was cultivated, isolated and purified from a pilot filter system using BAC, and was then applied to ...

  • Separation of finely dispersed sorbents from purified water by ultra-flocculation and turbulent micro-flotation

    This paper describes studies of the process of recovery of finely dispersed sorbents from water by means of ultra-flocculation, sedimentation and turbulent micro-flotation, and the sequential combination of these steps. With reference to the most commonly used finely dispersed sorbents in the purification of water from organic contaminants, heavy metals and radio nuclides (aluminium hydroxide, ...

  • Removal of inorganic anions from drinking water supplies by membrane bio/processes

    This paper is designed to provide an overview of the main membrane-assisted processes that can be used for the removal of toxic inorganic anions from drinking water supplies. The emphasis has been placed on integrated process solutions, including the emerging issue of membrane bioreactors. An attempt is made to compare critically recently reported results, reveal the best existing membrane ...

  • Sustainable power and innovation provide clean drinking water and energy

    In many areas in Kenya, access to clean drinking water is lacking. About 88% of the population must travel long distances to get to the nearest source of clean water or is forced to drink contaminated water. Children in particular suffer from waterborne diseases. Systems Provide Energy-Independent Water Treatment To try to provide a long-lasting solution for the drinking water needs ...

  • gaiasafe filter products for drinking water purification - Case Study

    Problem In some water works chlorination of drinking water is used to eliminate mikrobes. Chlorinated water may have disagreable taste and smell. Some water works use aluminium salts to clean the water. This leads to low concentrations of aluminium in drinking water. Today it is known that aluminium may be toxic to men. Old piping installations inside or outside private homes often where ...

  • Is It Safe To Drink Tape Water- How do I Know ?

    Well, let’s see what the government is saying about this.  According to the EPA, “Drinking water that meets US EPA’s health-based standards is generally safe. People who are not healthy as a result of illness, age, or weakened immune systems, are more likely to be at risk from certain contaminants that may be found in drinking water. Infants and very young children are also ...


  • Total photosynthetic pigments in addition to turbidity during the selection of coagulant treatments: a drinking water treatment perspective

    Total photosynthetic pigments (TPP) or chlorophyll-a analysis can be useful in selecting coagulant treatments that will improve phytoplankton removal and reduce treatment costs. The objectives of this study were to compare the efficacy of phytoplankton and turbidity removal when using TPP and turbidity as indicator parameters of appropriate coagulant treatments as well as to evaluate the ...

  • Rapid, specific and quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) detection of pathogenic protozoa Entamoeba histolytica for drinking water supply

    In this study, a quantitative species-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method to rapidly detect E. histolytica in water is developed. First, the specificity of E. histolytica PCR detection was verified by using species-specific primers of 16S-like rRNA genes to clearly differentiate it from the closely related amoebae species E. dispar and E. ...

  • The Rising Cost of Water

    There's a common economic paradox about the price tag on drinking water and value. Our current economic climate places prices on things predicated on scarcity and value. Water pricing is now more widespread, with the dual goal of expanding supply and encouraging more responsible use. So long as water remained abundant, the cheapness of drinking water is not likely to change. However, the price of ...
