Municipal Drinking Water

Water for public supply can be obtained from underground sources (for example, wells sunk into aquifers), or from surface sources such as purpose-built reservoirs (collecting rainwater run-off or water from streams), lakes or rivers. The quality of the water is of utmost concern for its safe consumption - the primary aim in water treatment is the elimination of any pathogenic microorganisms present. Ovivo provides a complete flow sheet for the treatment of raw water to potable water.

Every source of water can be subject to pollution. In the case of underground water, polluted surface water can enter the saturation zone of an aquifer and so lead to its contamination. Pollution can come from waste tip leachate containing heavy metals and organic compounds, farm run-off containing nitrates and pesticides, from industrial wastes and from contaminated land. River water can be affected by farm drainage, sewage works, industrial effluents and run-off water from roads. There is a clear need to maintain the quality of the aquatic environment to ensure that the available water is suitable for treatment for public supply, and that the cost of treatment is kept as low as possible.

Ovivo’s expertise in the global water industry, built up over decades of involvement in world class projects, means that we are ideally placed to make respected recommendations on these issues and to add value wherever possible.
