1. Emerging Contaminants


Emerging contaminants such as pharmaceutical compounds, personal care products, detergents, etc have been reported to be present in source waters and also in drinking water. Conventional wastewater treatment plants are not equipped to remove/destruct these contaminants so only they end up in source water. Another way these contaminants enter into source water is industrial effluents. In other countries, there have been numerous press articles and media coverage on this subject.

These contaminants should be destroyed (not removed) before they enter into the source water. Many people are not aware of these contaminants and their adverse effects so only the concern is not voiced. Existing treatment processes should be replaced with advanced treatment processes and standards should be set. If not in Municipal treatment plants, atleast in Industries.
