Q. What is the main purpose of setting up a drinking water treatment plant?
A. A drinking water treatment plant is set up to eliminate various particles inclusive of harmful
organisms that contaminate the water supply resulting in diseases. These plants are mainly set-up
for public welfare to ensure that people are able to access pure drinking water safe for consumption.
Q. What are the 9 distinct stages involved in water treatment?
A. Water treatment involves the following processes:
- Screening and Straining
- Chemical Addition
- Coagulation and Flocculation
- Sedimentation and Clarification
Q. How to use a water ATM
A. The water ATM works similar to an ATM used for withdrawing machine. It is operated with a help of
a coin which when inserted helps dispense drinkable water.
Q. What is packaged drinking water?
A. Packaged drinking water is sourced from a water treatment plant that helps the water undergo
various processes of filtration and disinfection. The water also undergoes UV as well as Ozone
treatments and RO, so that it can be made safe for drinking purposes.
Q. What is RO treatment?
A. RO is a fundamental process in water treatment. It is otherwise known as Reverse Osmosis and
involves water purification through partly permeable membrane. The process helps eliminate ions,
dissolved particles and unwanted molecules.
Q. What is demineralization?
A. Demineralization is a chemical process involving ion exchange and electrodeionization. It helps
create ultrapure water.
Q. What is effluent treatment?
A. Effluent treatment is a highly scientific procedure which involves biological treatments for filtering
greater percentage of organic maters that remain suspended in effluent.
Q. Why is iron removal important?
A. An iron removal plant features pressure filters which helps remove iron, ammonium, manganese
and arsenic from water.
