Control of Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) in Detroit need for cso
  • Our project is designed to prevent many kind of pollutant that can contaminate our drinking water sources,
  • reduce oxygen levels
  • can kill fish and other wildlife
  • accumulate in the tissue of fish we catch and eat from the lakes
  • reduce the beauty of the water

We will be able to filter out all the following pollutant throughout our chemical, electrical, and filtration stages that the water will go through:

Control of Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) in Detroit need for cso/Plant nutrients

Phosphates, nitrates

  • human-added in water
  • 80 percent of nitrates
  • 75 percent of phosphates

Algae

the water turn green

cloudy

smelly

the lake ages and becomes more nutrient-rich

10,000 years, but pollution can make the process occur 100 to 1,000 times faster

Cleaners

paints

solvents

one drop of used motor oil can pollute 25 liters of water!

in our gardens and lawns we tend to use ten times more pesticide per acre than a farmer would

epa requirements
EPA Requirements

EPA has proposed guidance to clarify the permitting requirements for blended discharges from publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) under wet weather flow conditions. The proposed rules would, in effect, provide a legal basis for authorizing the discharge of untreated sewage into our nation's waterways

the need for clean drinking water
The Need for Clean Drinking Water

one percent of the earth surface water is accessible and drinkable fresh water

between 2 and 5 million people die annually from unhealthy water

two-thirds of the world's population is likely to face some type of intermittent water shortages by 2025

Great Lakes Basin, of the U.S. and Canada, accounts for about 18 percent of the global fresh water

We are dumping our waste and toxics in it , turning it from a treasure to a curse that brings us diseases and pollution??!!!!!!
