When your residents turn on your tap, they probably don't give it a second thought. And yet, before the water flows to their taps, it has been on a long journey from its source, either groundwater or surface water, through you treatment plants and through your distribution network.
Water Treatment Challenges for Municipalities

Water must meet stringent safe drinking water standards before it can be declared safe and distributed to consumers. It is, moreover, one of the most quality controlled food products, and must be closely monitored during every stage of its journey, from collection to distribution.

Treating water to make it suitable for consumption requires expertise in multiple technologies and processes, as well as precise knowledge of water resources. Many factors must be considered, including quality, available resources, economic costs and environmental constraints.
