Small System, Big Benefits

The town of Newport Center, Vt., is a small community of approximately 1,500 residents located just south of the U.S.-Canada border. A combination of drought and increased water use required the drilling of a new well for the community to supplement the two wells already in service. Water quality testing of the new well found arsenic levels at 20 ppb, well above the drinking water standard set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the state of Vermont of 10 ppb.

Clean Water Close to Home

The water treatment industry seems to be full of new ideas about how to treat water in innovative ways. NPR reported that UNICEF is promoting a machine developed by Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology and HVR that turns sweat into drinking water by filtering the drippings squeezed from clothes. In answer to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Reinvent the Toilet” competition, researchers at Duke have developed a new toilet, complete with a self-contained waste recycling system, that transforms wastewater into drinking water.

Study finds that conditions in some aquifers enable contaminants to remain in groundwater longer

Key factors have been identified that help determine the vulnerability of public supply wells to contamination. A new U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report describes these factors, providing insight into which contaminants in an aquifer might reach a well, and when, how and at what concentration they might arrive.

About one-third of the U.S. population gets its drinking water from public supply wells.
