Water is life. Without water there would not be life on Earth. We all depend on water – people, business and ecosystems. At the same time, people and business also impact water. We use it without realizing its real value and often take the resource itself and the services it provides for granted. Water availability is increasingly limited. Globally, water resources are constant, but if current trends continue, water demand is predicted to increase by 55% worldwide between 2000 and 2050, with some industries increasing much more, such as manufacturing by 400% and electricity production by 140% (OECD, 2012). Water resources will not allow for such growth without an increase in the productivity of water use. Business as usual is simply not an option and reversing this trend is imperative.
Facts about Fluoride in Water
Previously, the only route of exposure to fluoride was by drinking water or food that contained natural sources of fluoride. Currently, exposure to fluoride comes from more sources including fluoridated dental products such as toothpaste and mouthwash, as well as the addition of fluoride to drinking water, for reducing tooth decay. Some bottled water products (such as spring water) can contain fluoride that is added or naturally present in the original source of the water. According to the CDC, in 2014 over 74%...
Sunset Colony Study
“We have had the Silver Bullet AG300 unit now for ten months with great measurable results. This system is currently on our water line, treating the swine gestation, farrowing and nursery. The unit can treat 75,000 gallons of water per day and will be injected into our large water tank to treat our swine gestation, farrowing, nursery, finishers and dairy. What I like about the Silver Bullet system is that it is rented monthly and our distributor (Prairie Livestock Supply) handles all of the water testing...
Rapid Portable Cross-Connection Detection by Sensitive Fluorescence Spectroscopy
AbstractThe implementation of dual reticulation systems for returning recycled water to the home for nonpotable use is now common in new Australian housing developments. Managing the associated public health risk requires consideration of the potential for crossconnections between recycled and potable water pipes. While current protocols for detection exist, they are time consuming and cross-connections have occurred despite their implementation. Cross-connections may occur anywhere from a network to single...
The Future of Fresh Water
Around the world, sustained effort will be necessary to ensure adequate supplies Fresh water is becoming more and more scarce across the globe, and in the absence of adequate countermeasures, the trend is expected to continue in the future. With demand growing and sources dwindling, water scarcity already touches approximately 2.8 billion people from every continent for at least one month a year, and more than 1.2 billion people have no access to clean drinking water. Shrinking supply and growing demand for...
