The Good, The Bad and The Opportunity

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but there is a good and a bad side of consumer awareness. Just a few months back I talked about the increase of consumer awareness about water quality with recent media reports: clever TV ads such as the GE Ecomagination ad, “Fishing for Water” that informs TV viewers about GE’s desalination technology, and the report listing the different certification marks for common household goods, including the NSF Mark and WQA’s Gold Seal Mark.

Farm Animals Need Clean Water, Too

In 2001, the Minnesota State Fair built the Miracle of Birth Center to reflect modern animal production practices in the existing Children's Barnyard at the fairgrounds. Dechlorinated water was one very important step that could be made to keep the animals comfortable and healthy at the fair.

Filtration Fundamentals

Over the years, water quality has noticeably deteriorated worldwide. This decline in water quality stems from the extreme demand on very limited natural resources. Various principles of filtration are used in many applications to improve the general quality of the water that is being treated. Along with screen filters, coagulation/filtration, neutralizing filters, oxidizing filters, clairifying filters and carbon filters are other treatment methods that may be used.
