Potable water comes from the earth’s surface and ground sources. It is treated for bacteria, microorganisms, toxic chemicals, viruses, and fecal matter. This is to make the water safe for human consumption, such as drinking and cooking. The potable water in Canadian cities such as St. Albert is tested regularly and considered safe to use.
A responsible combination of old and new technologies is necessary to make the most of existing water resources and avoid a global clean drinking water crisis. Water treatment started thousands of years ago. Ancient Egyptians were the first to use alum flocculation in about 1700 BCE. Aluminum sulfate is used in many water treatment plants to clarify the potable water and decrease the phosphorous amount.
Chlorination is also an essential step in making water potable. Sometimes the water is pre-chlorinated to prevent algae and biological growth. Other times water is chlorinated in the final stage of treatment. Iron is dissolved from the water with a combination of chlorination and aeration. Ultraviolet light and potential hydrogen adjustment are also used to disinfect water and make it potable.
One of the most cutting edge methods for making water potable is ion exchange. Unwanted and dissolved ions are replaced with similarly charged ions. Ion exchange is commonly used for water softening, demineralization, dealkalization, deionization, and disinfection. Ion exchange can also target specific contaminants, such as nitrates and uranium.
There are about 500 boil water advisories in Canada every year because of the contaminants that may be in the water supply. While water quality is highly regulated in Canada, contamination is still possible. Lead and pesticides such as atrazine can still make their way into a local water supply. Microplastics are another contaminant that can still be found in the water supply in certain areas, such as St. Albert.
