Borehole water treatment

Because of water’s particular di-polar nature, it is very rare that water abstracted from a borehole is fit to drink without treatment.  If not contaminated by industry or agriculture, borehole water treatment would invariably involve;

  • adjustment of pH
  • removal of iron and manganese
  • removal of dissolved salts (if the electrical conductivity exceeds 170 mS/m)
  • removal of heavy metals such as copper, lead and zinc
  • micro-biological disinfection

Modified shipping containers are ideal for housing the unit treatment processes.
