urbidity is defined as the amount of cloudiness in a particular water sample; the cloudiness is caused by the sediment in the sample. Turbidity is related to the amount of light that can pass through the water. It is normally measured using a meter although there are other ways to ascertain the turbidity levels of a sample. The particles measured by a turbidity meter are those that are so small that they will not settle to the bottom if agitated. Subsequently the water can appear turbid. Full Story

The process of desalination is used for separating the salt from sea water and then the water can be used for various purposes. The content of salt in water varies and the classification is based on that. In the process of desalination, the water is divided into two or three streams, depending on the level of salinity that is present in the water. This is very effective for providing potable water in the coastal areas. The coastal areas have large supplies of water but that water cannot be used for any purpose. Thus water in those areas has to be desalinated and only used thereafter. Reverse osmosis water is one of the many effective ways that are employed for desalination process. It is quite possible to remove insoluble ingredients from water by various filtering processes, but elements like salt dissolve in water and thus it is not that easy to remove salt from water. Processes like reverse osmosis water and electrodialysis are the most common ways of desalination. Full Story

The U.S. government considers wastewater treatment to be a vital part of the water use cycle because it is so interconnected with the use and utility of water. Nearly all of the water that is used by humans, either in the home or by industry, must go through wastewater treatment systems before it is released back into the environment. Releasing water used for industrial purposes without treating it to remove pollutants would quickly overwhelm nature's ability to filter and clean the water we need, leaving the earth with a constantly diminishing supply of water. Full Story
