Radiation treatment of polluted water and wastewater

“Over 70 per cent of the Earth's surface is covered with water, but less than 3 per cent of that is freshwater — most of it locked up in glaciers, ice caps, the atmosphere and deep groundwater reservoirs.Just 13 per cent of the globe's total fresh water is readily available to meet human needs. In themeantime, worldwide demand for water is doubling every 21 years, according to the FAO. Asindustrial, agricultural and domestic pollution threatens finite supplies, water is becoming anincreasingly precious resource that must be managed judiciously.” (IAEA Technical Cooperation — APartner in Development, ‘Managing Water Resources’).
