Access to Better Quality Water for More Than 87% Of The Earth’s Population


It’s almost ten years when more than a hundred and eighty nine countries that are members of the United Nations promised to provide their citizens access to quality water supply by 2015. From the time the project started, a lot more than two people have access to fresh and potable water with some countries still lagging at the rear of the line being among those that have listed a lot of development.

As of this moment, more than 120 nations around the world have now met the standards required by the United Nations regarding supply of clean water for their people, many of which have excellent cleanliness standards. But of the leftover populace, a little bit more than 170 million individuals still use surface water that is not properly treated according to standards.

Figures published last week by UN states that that about 1.8 billion individuals are residing in waterfronts that provide less than five hundred cubic meters every year while about sixty six percent of the entire earth’s population are living in waterfronts that provide not more than 1700 cubic meters for every individual.

Majority of the natural disasters that happen today are caused by man. And while the global warming phenomenon is a very complex matter to detail, still this can lead to the weakening of the entire earth system and will eventually result to total destruction in the future. The condition that the environment faces today is the result of how we, humans, have degraded the nature either accidental or on purpose such as oil leaks, wastes disposal, soil and groundwater contamination, and other actions that result to the degradation of the environment. Today, NGOs and private water remediation contractors are developing new and innovative technologies that can help control and keep contaminants at bay. By providing an efficient pollution control system, there is a better chance for reducing carbon footprint especially for large industrial plants.


The technology for ground water remediation may differ but most if it can be used for treating water waste and contamination. Methods for remediation usually include active carbon absorption, soil washing, incineration, and or ion exchange. But with the help of expert remediation contractors particularly those with specialization in the industrial level, companies can be guided as to the best approach needed and industry specific solution to help them restore the clean conditions of the environment. Some companies even go through consulting firms to help them bring in a much wider scope of research and vital information that may require extreme turn on the part of the company commissioning the service.

The process of water remediation must be performed because normally, water tends to circulate around human habitation or end up in the atmosphere which typically results to production of surplus water. The surplus water is usually contaminated by various toxic agents including aromatics, different types of pesticides, petroleum particles, radioactive materials, and other inorganic compounds including VOCs or volatile organic compounds.
