Quality of Drinking Water

Source

The major sources of drinking water are rivers

slide5
But the insufficient quantity of river water is unable to meet drinking water demands of most of the municipalities.

Hence municipalities have to meet-up this shortfall from the groundwater.

slide6

Quality Issues with River Water

River water is getting contaminated due to

Direct disposal of sewage into rivers by municipalities

slide7

River water is also getting contaminated due to

Excessive discharge of industrial pollutants into rivers

slide8

River water is also getting contaminated due to

Extensive disposal of plastics & chemicals into rivers

quality issues with ground water
Quality Issues with Ground Water

Extensive withdrawal of ground water for agriculture & domestic use is fast depleting the level of underground water.

slide10
Deeper underground water encounters deposits of hard minerals specially Arsenic, Fluoride and Pesticides.
slide11

The groundwater is also getting contaminated due to

Percolation of household wastes, livestock wastes, pesticides, fertilizers etc. into the groundwater.

health effects of drinking impure water
Health Effects of Drinking Impure Water

These water impurities cause serious diseases to mankind

quality of water purified by municipalities
Quality of Water Purified by Municipalities
  • Most municipalities purify river water before supplying it to residential areas.
  • But their water treatment methods are minimal & comprise of Filtration and Chlorination to prevent the bacterial growth.
  • Moreover, the Water Treatment Plants lack the facilities to remove the harmful dissolved impurities such as Arsenic, Fluoride, Chemicals & Pesticides.
rusting of pipelines
Rusting of Pipelines

To curb the wastage of water, Municipality supply water for limited hours only. Rest of the hours, these pipelines are exposed to air which oxidizes them and results in the formation of rust in them. This rust gets dissolved in water traveling through these pipelines.

ingress of sewage
Ingress of Sewage

Besides rusting, municipal pipelines are also exposed to the ingress of sewage due to leakage in pipelines.

contamination of water in overhead tanks
Contamination of Water in Overhead Tanks

With increasing urbanization, water supplied by the municipalities is not used for drinking purpose directly. Instead it is stored in the overhead tanks which are a breeding ground for bacteria and contamination.

contamination of water in household pipelines
Contamination of Water in Household Pipelines

Water also gets contaminated while traversing the network of age-old pipelines in homes. Thus, by the time it reaches a tap, it becomes unfit for drinking purpose.

required quality of water
Required Quality of Water
  • 99% of the water supplied by municipalities is used for bathing, washing and cleaning purpose
  • Only 1% of the water supply is used for drinking purpose
  • While water required for bathing and washing does not require strict standards for dissolved impurities, drinking water certainly needs to meet more stringent norms.
purifying the drinking water
Purifying the Drinking Water

One can install more expensive Purification System at municipal end to purify the river water & the groundwater to drinking water standards.

  • But 99% of this high quality drinking water would be used for bathing & washing which do not require such high standards of water purification. Therefore it would be a waste of the expensive resources.
  • Even if the water would be purified to drinking water quality, by the time it would reach a tap, it would become contaminated by Rust and Bacteria and would be unfit for drinking.
slide21

Pure Drinking Water - Must for a Healthy Nation

Only solution is to use POU water purifiers

slide22

The Best Solution - POU Water Purifiers

  • Therefore need of an hour is to emphasize the importance of purifying the municipal water at the point of use.
  • This measure would ensure that even after getting a water supply which got contaminated during transportation and storage, the customer still drinks only 100% safe drinking water with the aid of POU purifiers.

The Best Solution - POU Water Purifiers
  • Instead of installing expensive Purification Systems at the Municipal end, the best way out is to promote use of POU (Point of Use) Water Purifiers.
  • The present day purifiers are effective in removing even the dissolved impurities besides bacteria & viruses.
  • These purifiers when installed at the point of consumption would make the drinking water 100% pure & safe.
