Sound Stormwater Solutions Can Solve Several Potable Water Problems
The common answer to this problem is usually a chlorine treatment similar to that used to clean swimming pools. However, this form of chemical treatment is dangerous due to the chemical properties of chlorine (a toxic gas) and the potential hazardous effects of combining chlorine with water. As such, other stormwater solutions like filtration have been proposed.
Filtering involves using a filter to separate unwanted impurities from the water that will undergo purification. These filters vary in size, some are used to separate debris and twigs, among other things, from water; some remove impurities such as sediments and bacteria. The end result, after undergoing multiple stages of filtration, is clean water.
