Managing Groundwater Quality for Domestic Usage
Groundwater is a crucial water source for domestic purposes especially for communities with limited access to surface water. While moderate level of certain naturally occurring minerals found in groundwater can be beneficial for consumption, excessive levels of hardness and sulfates in groundwater can be detrimental to various domestic activities. Furthermore, in certain countries, rapid industrialization can cause groundwater contamination. Therefore, treating groundwater is imperative to ensure its safety and optimal quality for consumption.
