  19. 19. Why is it Important to Clean Our Water? • Arsenic – Could cause skin damage, circulatory problems and increased risk of cancer.
  20. 20. Why is it Important to Clean Our Water? • Arsenic – Could cause skin damage, circulatory problems and increased risk of cancer. • Lead – Can cause various health problems
  21. 21. Why is it Important to Clean Our Water? • Arsenic – Could cause skin damage, circulatory problems and increased risk of cancer. • Lead – Can cause various health problems • Nitrate – In drinking water at levels above 10ppm is a health risk for infants younger than 6 months of age. High levels of nitrate in drinking water can cause blue baby syndrome.

  23. 23. General Wastewater Treatment
  24. 24. General Wastewater Treatment • All water treatments involve removal of solids, bacteria, algae, plants, inorganic compounds, and organic compounds. – Removal of solids is usually done by filtration and sediment. – Converting used water into environmentally acceptable water is wastewater treatment
  25. 25. General Wastewater Treatment • All water treatments involve removal of solids, bacteria, algae, plants, inorganic compounds, and organic compounds. – Removal of solids is usually done by filtration and sediment. – Converting used water into environmentally acceptable water is wastewater treatment • Charcoal is used to remove the color of raw sugar from various sources.
  26. 26. General Wastewater Treatment • All water treatments involve removal of solids, bacteria, algae, plants, inorganic compounds, and organic compounds. – Removal of solids is usually done by filtration and sediment. – Converting used water into environmentally acceptable water is wastewater treatment • Charcoal is used to remove the color of raw sugar from various sources. • Water can be treated with and Al2(SO4)3 12H2O and Ca(OH)2 – Electrolytes causes pH to change
