DOC: SILVER: WATER DISINFECTION AND TOXICITY


Silver has been known to have antibacterial properties since Roman times, however, the increased use of nanosilver in a range of (as yet largely) experimental drinking-water treatment systems, its use in conjunction with ceramic filters and its perceived potential to be a water disinfectant that does not result in disinfection by-products (DBP) in the treated water have raised the profile of this chemical....

  AQUATIC AERATION

... OXYGEN IS THE KEY TO HEALTHY WATER. WATER NATURALLY RECEIVES OXYGEN TWO WAYS: - AT THE SURFACE WHERE THE AIR AND WATER CONTACT EACH OTHER - FROM THE PHOTOSYNTHESIS OF ALGAE AND PLANTS BELOW THE WATER SURFACE. IN STAGNANT WATER THERE IS NO EXCHANGE OF OXYGEN AND WATER FORMS WELL DEFINED LAYERS OF DIFFERENT TEMPERATURES. AERATION ASSISTS IN OXYGENATING AND AGITATING THE WATER. IT ALSO PREVENTS WINTER ICE FROM SEALING THE POND SURFACE, ALLOWING OXYGEN TRANSFER. ...

  PLANNING FOR AN EMERGENCY DRINKING WATER SUPPLY

... FIVE WORKSHOPS WERE CONVENED WITH ABOUT SIXTY TECHNICAL EXPERTS TO REVIEW ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF PROVIDING DRINKING WATER IN THE EVENT OF DESTRUCTION, IMPAIRMENT, OR CONTAMINATION OF THE PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY. VARIOUS SCENARIOS WERE ASSUMED, SUCH AS DESTRUCTION OR IMPAIRMENT OF THE WATER INFRASTRUCTURE BY A POWERFUL EARTHQUAKE AND CONTAMINATION EVENTS REQUIRING ALTERNATE SUPPLIES OF DRINKI NG WATER. ...
