Public Water Management - Municipalities

The major problem today is represented in the shortage of potable water throughout the world and for many countries and especially for the islands, an effective solution to this matter is the desalination of brackish and seawater using the reverse osmosis technology. Other alternatives are offered where there are available water resources like lakes, rivers, dams or underground pure water and only mechanical filtration and chemical conditioning of the water is enough to transform it to potable water.

 

 

The groundwater high salinity is the major quality problem for potable purposes, for example high salt contents of sulphates, nitrates, chlorides, sodium, fluoride, arsenic, boron make the water unpalatable to humans, unsuitable for daily personal hygiene. In addition to the high salinity, bacteria load , iron, manganese, organic material and chlorination derivative compounds such as tetrachloroethylenes,  also common in the groundwater resources form part of the primary water treatment since their removal is indispensable for high quality drinking water production.   

The membrane separation technology is used in a broad spectrum for  water potabilization purposes  and especially the reverse osmosis is the most common technology employed for drinking water production because of its reliability, compactness, easy installation and maintenance and low operating costs. This technology has rapidly developed over the years employing materials certified and approved by the most important health organizations as FDA and NSF and high salinity water is easily and competitively transformed into  standard quality drinking water with quality parameters complying with the ones defined and issued by the World Health Organization (WHO).
