World Water Day Urges the International Community to Reuse and Recycle
Millions of people around the world are living without access to clean drinking water. To draw attention to what some experts are calling one of the largest public issues of our time; World Water Day was established as an international day of observance and action. According to the UN, more than half of the world will be living with water shortages in the next 50 years.
One solution to the growing problem is reclaiming and recycling water instead of disposing it into oceans and rivers. Using new technology, a growing number of communities in the U.S. are starting to reuse and recycle water. This new process takes water through three steps, first traveling through hollow fiber membranes that remove 99.99 percent of all bacteria, then through reverse osmosis and finally through advanced oxidation using ultraviolet light. The result is near-distilled quality water. The entire process consumes about 50% less energy than importing water from outside sources.
While this new technology makes conservation easier than ever before, it's only one part of the bigger solution. Experts urge that all Americans participate in conservation with everyday activities that include taking shorter showers, checking faucets for leaks and watering lawns judiciously.
