What Are The Different Process Of Water Treatment?

It is often said that water is cure for all diseases. But there is an irony as well. Water is also the reason for several diseases.  Contaminated water carries with it several germs, which when enter our body, makes us fall sick. Algae, Bacteria, viruses, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Campylobacter and parasite present in water make us fall sick.

Even lead and copper are present in water. That is why, it is always advised that we should drink germ-free and safe water. Water should be treated properly and made suitable for drinking. The water treatment plant where water is purified should be of the most optimum level.Water Treatment Plant

The treatment of water is a lengthy process and has several steps. Have a look at the three main stages of Water treatment process:

The primary stage removes the larger solids from the water. At first the water is pumped and stored in one place. The water is then screened and stored. It is in the primary stage that water is conditioned and chlorinated beforehand.

The secondary stage process includes usage of variety of techniques to remove finer solid pieces, organic and inorganic material and microorganisms as well. It is in this stage that the pH balance of water is adjusted; the contaminants are flocculated and grouped. After removing the sediment, the water is filtered. Ultra filtration of water is also done.

In the final and tertiary stage, the water is once again treated. The impurities which are still left are removed by adding disinfectant to the water. Ultra violet radiation, Ozone, Chlorine,Chlorine dioxide are used to purify in this last stage of water treatment process.

The Solution to the Hottest Summers Ever

It’s too hot this year. Many weather experts have observed and have even felt that this year’s summers have been the hottest ever in the past ten to fifteen years. Many people also feel that the temperature in Indian Cities like Kolkata is surpassing places like Dubai. Now these trends are really worrying as they can be assessed as the initial signs of global warming. The burning of the skin resulting to further skin problems is also a scary thing to worry about due to this extremely hot weather.

Water Treatment ProcessApart from these problems, another grave problem which is arising is the scarcity of pure and drinkable aqua. Many aqua bodies tend to dry up during such hot conditions like rivers, ponds and lakes. Thanks to modernized technology that machinery like a water treatment plant is there to purify any available aqua source in the vicinity of the machinery set up.

These machines have the capability to set up a process which can purify any kind of aqua. Such an aqua may be impure in nature that too to its height or it may be even be toxic. We can even see that if it’s impure then causes may be “natural” like bacterial or fungal infections. On the other hand aqua being impure may also have “chemical” causes like having presence of materials like organic and inorganic chemicals within the aqua. They come due to industrial wastes being directly thrown into aqua bodies.
