Water Treatment

The Current Environment – Water Treatment

The current Drinking Water Regulations (S.I. No. 122 of 2014) came into force in 2014 and were amended in 2017 (S.I. No. 464 of 2017), these regulations provide the EPA with supervisory powers for public water supplies. Irish Water is now responsible for the provision of municipal water supply to all the main population areas, with some rural areas being served by Group Water Schemes. The National Federation of Group Water Schemes (NFGWS) is the representative and negotiating organisation for community-owned rural water services in Ireland.

Industrial Clients have various requirements for process waters of varying standards and quality, to meet their individual processing needs. For instance, the food and beverage industry requires water for various applications within its manufacturing facilities, where it must be free from undesirable taste, odour, colour and impurities. Water quality is ensured by hygienic design principles to optimize microbial control throughout the treatment process.

water treatment for drinking water

2.5% of the earth’s water is fresh water and, of that, less than 1% is accessible for use by humans – 1.6 billion litres of drinking water is produced every day in Ireland.
