Bill Hunt, executive director of operations for the Orange County Water District, looks out at three large basins of water in Anaheim.
“It’s an aquamarine color. The water is brilliant and clear,” says Hunt. “It’s very inviting. On a warm day, you want to go in it. It’s beautiful water.”
Hunt is not describing a tropical ocean, but recycled sewage.
It’s replenishing the district’s large groundwater aquifer — which is the source of drinking water for 2.4 million people in Orange County.
Nagaland minister for public health engineering department Noke Wangnao inaugurated an innovative water project — solar-powered water treatment unit — at Tsiesema village near Kohima on Friday. Nagaland is the first state in the country to set up the unique technology.
Here’s something to add to your doomsday list of natural resources that people need to survive but are threatened by climate change: snow.
No water bottle? No problem. Ooho, a biodegradable, water balloon-like blob, could soon be a cheap, environmentally friendly alternative to the ubiquitous plastic bottle.
Few people outside of the oil and gas world care about such records, which fill a corner of the university’s Bureau of Economic Geology building that Mr. Ortuño calls his “kingdom.” But those looking to shore up the state’s water supplies are deeply interested. As drought grips most of Texas, researchers are combing the records to map brackish groundwater in the state’s 30 aquifers — hidden resources that could help quench the state’s long-term thirst.
WaterSmart Software, a small startup in San Francisco, is working with local water districts in California and other states to transform meter data into easy-to-understand home water reports that are mailed directly to homeowners or made accessible via the Web and mobile devices.
A father-and-son team in Leamington is hoping five years of researching, designing and testing a greenhouse water filtration system is going to payoff in the near future.
VietNamNet Bridge – The water filtration method with biotechnology found by the scientists of the Vietnam Science and Technology Academy has demonstrated the high ability of filtering organic matters and capable of cleansing nitrogen, a pollutant existing in water wells.
Water is becoming an increasingly important issue in the developed world. But this issue is nothing new for other, less developed nations. For centuries, clean drinking water has been hard to come by for many populations, especially the poor. In some areas, water may be available, but it’s often disease-ridden, and drinking it can be fatal. In other areas, a viable water supply is simply not available at all.
Water will become the new oil, and unlike oil, life without water is not possible. G and E Partners brings to the marketplace this patented technology that makes pure water from the air – why buy bottled water when you can make it? No more bottles, jugs, water storage areas or invoices!
