UNICEF to deliver 1,000 tons of chlorine across all 14 governorates in Syria

A large-scale operation is underway in Syria to secure safe water supplies for more than 10 million people — close to half the population, according to UNICEF.

The first four trucks, carrying 80 tons of sodium hypochlorite water chlorination supplies, crossed the Jordanian border into Syria on Feb. 3, heading for Homs, Aleppo, Hama and Idleb. Over the coming weeks, UNICEF will deliver 1,000 tons of chlorine to cities and communities across all 14 governorates in Syria.

Battling Bacteria With Chlorine

Homeowners with a private well as their primary drinking water source are responsible for ensuring the safety of their water. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), well owners should test their water at least once a year for bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, pH and any other suspected contaminants. Additional testing should be considered if there have been any repairs to the well, the wellhead gets flooded, there are recurring gastrointestinal problems in the household, or there are any noticeable changes in color, odor or taste.

Disinfection Part 2: Is Chlorine Still the Answer?

Alternatives to the use of chlorine have received increased interest since concerns over the formation of disinfection byproducts (DBPs) have emerged. However, most of these alternatives (i.e., chloramine, chlorine dioxide and ozone) also produce DBPs. Chlorine still is the most common drinking water disinfectant used today and the one we have the most information about. On balance, the health risks of not chlorinating water appear to be greater than risks associated with DBPs.
