Water is declared drinkable and can be distributed to consumers only when it meets well-defined quality parameters. It is, moreover, one of the most stringently controlled food products. It is subject to extreme vigilance at every stage of its journey, from collection to distribution.
The production of drinking water thus requires expertise in multiple technologies and processes as well as the ability to anticipate requirements, which involves precise knowledge of water resources. Available reserves of natural water include groundwater (water tables), standing or running surface water (lakes, rivers, etc.), and seawater. The implementation of a treatment system to produce water that is suitable for drinking depends on the quantity of water available, its quality (taking into account the possible variations), economic costs and environmental constraints.
Water resources are a determining factor in the implementation of an optimal drinking water production system. Through the design of treatment systems ranging from the traditional to the more sophisticated, we offer local authorities technical solutions that meet their sanitary quality requirements, whether for a village of several hundred inhabitants or for a major urban area.
