Because water often travels through miles of pipeline to reach you, contaminants from corrosion, leaks or breaks in the aging infrastructure are allowed back into your water. When water is pumped to the well house from underground and from surface water, chlorine is added to destroy harmful viruses and bacteria and to protect it as it journeys to your home or business. As precipitation falls to earth, it may pick up contaminants from the air. Water continues accumulating debris, minerals and sediment as it travels through the soil and to nearby surface water. Once at the wastewater treatment facility, water is filtered and then passes to a settling tank for clarifying and biological treatments. An ultraviolet disinfection process is the final step, and in less than 24 hours, clean water is discharged back into the environment. Water touches every aspect of the home. Everything that goes down the drain, including food, cleaners, soaps, detergents and prescription drugs, are added to the water as it begins its journey to the wastewater treatment facility. Water is constantly on the move and being reused, making it important to monitor what enters your water supply and treat it accordingly for your home or business. Water is constantly on the move, traveling through soil, city filtration facilities and finally making its way through miles of pipelines into your home. On this journey, it’s easy for contaminants to be introduced back into already treated water, whether it’s from corrosion, leaks or breaks in aging infrastructure.
