Access to clean drinking water is a basic need, and
safe water supplies, hygienic sanitation and effective water management
programs are fundamental to human health.
The need for uninterrupted, reliable and trustworthy
water supplies is reaching alarming levels in many geographical areas.
This urgency is felt whether it involves water
disinfection at large municipal water treatment plants that service the greater
metropolitan areas or smaller rural areas supplied from boreholes and other
water sources. Surface and underground water sources can contain
harmful contaminants and micro-organisms.
These must be removed from the water
in order to achieve a water quality that is fit for use.Treating these water
sources also aids in preserving water system infrastructure and avoids back
contamination by maintaining a reliable and consistent disinfectant residual level
all along the piping networks and in the reservoirs.
The World Health Organization recognizes that
certain products containing sources of active chlorine are an effective water treatment
method. Lonza is one of the largest producers of Calcium Hypochlorite and
provides complete and innovative water-treatment solutions, including chemicals
and engineered feeding units to meet specific needs.
Whether sanitation is needed in urban or rural
areas, Lonza’s product range dedicated to potable water tackles this obstacle
head on, including the ability to sanitize water in reservoirs, storage tanks,
boreholes or other isolated water sources.
