How is Our Drinking Water Purified!?

Treating water to make it suitable to drink is much like wastewater.in areas that depend on surface water it is usually stored in reservoir for several days,in order to improve clarity and taste by allowing more oxygen from the air to dissolve in it and allowing suspended matter to settle out.The water is then pumped to a purification plant through pipelines,where it is treated,so that it will meet government treatment standards.

Usually the water runs through sand filters first and sometimes through activated charcoal,before it is disinfected.Disinfection can be done by bacteria or by adding substances to remove contaminants from the water.The number of purification steps that are taken depend on the quality of the water that enters taken depend the purification plant.in areas with very pure sources of government little treatment is needed.Contact your local water district.
