Waste Water Contamination in Drinking Water
As cities grow and populations surge the impact of waste and byproducts from agricultural and industrial growth are having impacts on the environment.
A great deal of discussion has risen around both the impact of waste water management across the nation as well as resource acquisition in the form of drilling and mining.
When it comes to dealing with waste water one of the most difficult contaminants to deal with are prions. Prions are considered to be in part responsible for many diseases such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, mad cow disease and chronic wasting disease.

“Our results suggest that if prions enter municipal wastewater

treatment systems, most of the agent would bond to sewage

sludge, survive anaerobic digestion, and be present in treated

biosolids,”
-Dr. Joel Pedersen


With an increasing population these issues may progress to the

point that the established infrastructures in place intended to deal

with these contaminants before they get to the consumer are

increasingly overburdened. What does this mean? The individual

home owner and consumer will ultimately be responsible for both

knowing what is in their drinking water and removing contaminants

from it.
Reverse Osmosis coupled with Deionization is one of the and

arguably the most effective way to purify drinking water and ensure

the safety of the water and the consumer. A company at the forefront of these technologies is Aquathin. Located out of Popano, Florida.
We definitely encourage our readers to do their research and look into their options for water purification. You can check out Aquahtin’s website for more information here http://www.aquathin.com/ .
