Drinking Water






WHO estimates that, in India, about 38 million people are affected by waterborne diseases each year, of which over 75% are children; 780,000 deaths are attributable to contaminated water and more than 400,000 can be attributed to diarrhea alone. India ranks a dismal low 120th out of 122 nations for its water quality and 133rd out of 180 nations for its water availability. Keeping in mind the above points; following problems are commonly faced by our current drinking water facilities:

a. Traces of inorganic contaminants(As, Cr, Mn, Fe, etc)
b. DBP formation due to Chlorine (THM, HAA, etc)
c. Traces of organic contaminants
d. Endocrine disruptors ( DDT, Oxybenzone, Atrazine, etc)
e. Tastes and odours
f. Improper Disinfection( Presence of E. Coli, Cryptosporidium, Salmonella, Streptococci etc)
g. Color


Oxidation
  • COD/TOC
  • Increased DO so that no anaerobic condition is generated
  • Fe/Mn
  • Hydrogen Sulfide
  • Taste and Odor
  • Color
  • Specific Chemicals (Endocrine Disruptors etc)
  • Disinfection
  • Bacteria (The subsequent inability to divide and form colonies.)
  • Virus (The inability of the microorganism to form plaques in host cell.)
  • Parasites (The inability to replicate.)

  • Effect on Flocculation
  • Less chemical coagulant
  • Lower solids handling
  • Lower turbidity and particles
  • Longer Run Time
  • Less Backwashing
  • Pre-Treatment using Ozone does the following
  • Remove pathogens thus reducing challenges at final disinfection especially Cryptosporidium which is highly resistant to chlorination
  • Make the water more responsive to final disinfection by reducing chlorine demand and removing constituents of TOC- turbidity, color, DOC, endocrine disruptors.
  • Reduce the probability of THM by-product formation by removing precursors to its formation in the initial stage itself.
  • Longer Run Time
  • Less Backwashing
