Drinking water treatment

Applying adequate treatment to raw water to meet drinking water regulations and secure clean and safe drinking water

Access to clean and safe drinking water is a prerequisite for human life. However, according to WHO nearly 850 million people still lack access to even a basic drinking water service. The optimal type of service and treatment depends on local conditions and the availability of water sources – groundwater, surface water or desalinated seawater. In any case, the raw water must receive adequate treatment to meet drinking water regulations. In Denmark, all tap water is based on groundwater, which only requires simple treatment before being distributed in a sealed pipe system to the customers. This saves costs and eliminates the need for chlorine and other chemicals while minimising the risk of bacteria. The end-result is great tasting and safe tap water.
