Drinking Water Systems

Company Reference: 

Berkefeld M Series drinking water plants were developed for military and humanitarian operations. The systems treat almost all available raw water, such as well water, surface water, brackish water, seawater and water with high turbidity. The series covers various sizes, from M1, producing 1 cu meter of water per hour, to M12, producing 12 cu meters per hour. The plants have an intelligent HMI interface and can be run automatically. 

Safe & Sanitary

Clean water is crucial to health, and around the world, thousands of people die each day due to waterborne illnesses. The Water & Sanitation Rotarian Action Group (WASRAG) is an organization that implements WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) programs around the world in an effort to reduce death and disease. Water Quality Products Managing Editor Kate Cline recently spoke with Steve Werner of WASRAG to find out more about educating people on safe water and sanitation.

Sunny Water Sanitation

Many regions in Malawi, Africa, are struggling with access to safe drinking water. Urban areas are subject to tap water supplies with little to no water treatment, while the surrounding rural communities are forced to drink from untreated and poorly maintained wells and boreholes, resulting in high rates of diarrhea and other sanitation-associated illness.
