This week's NEWS for April 1

AP admits that the drugs were in their reporter's bloodstream... not in the water! Congress passes drinking water security bill that tells Homeland Security to keep their fingers out of the drinking water.

Bottled water industry and drinking water folks agree: Drinking water has no calories.

Research

  • Australia CRC research: Point of Entry/Use Treatment for Delivery of Potable Water (PDF file, 2.96 MB)
    Commentary: The report, based on a study of POE/POU devices to treat poor quality water sources, concludes, in part: "
    Preliminary cost calculations suggest that POE may be cheaper than building centralised treatment plants with widespread distribution systems for towns with less than 150 households... The trials...indicate that commercially available equipment can produce safe drinking water generally at a lower cost per household than centralised treatment if a distribution per household network is in place.  ...the key issue associated with POE/POU systems...is the maintenance, operation, and monitoring of these systems..."
