Water Quality Testing and Treatment Systems for Pharmaceuticals

Nearly half of all Americans take one or more prescription drugs, with the percentage soaring to 85 percent for persons aged 60 and above (myself included). Water is the most widely used substance in the production, formulation, and packing of myriad pharmaceuticals, which are compounds manufactured for use as medicinal drugs.

This article explains how water impacts the medicines you take, and what lengths are taken to keep them safe....Read More »

Addressing Water Scarcity: Future Plans for U.S. Water Reuse

雖然我居住的丹佛大部分地區都能看到白雪皚皚的山脈,但科羅拉多州是預計未來十年將麵臨缺水挑戰的40個州之一。水質與健康委員會(Water Quality&Health Council)就飲用水質量以及安全處理、消毒、儲存和分配的公共衛生要求撰寫了數十篇文章。然而,水質與水的可用性、使用、保護和日益增加的水再利用密切相關。由美國環境保護局BOB体育投注官网苹果(EPA)領導的一份新發布的報告和全國性努力,即全國水再利用行動計劃草案,正在成為新聞。該計劃簡明扼要地闡述了這些需求和聯係:“為人類消費、農業、商業、工業、娛樂和健康的生態係統提供安全可靠的供水,對我們國家的社區和經濟至關重要。”水資源短缺的挑戰也是全球性的;聯合國的兩個可持續發展目標強調水的再利用。。。。Read More »

Reducing Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Inequalities around the World

It is unsettling to realize that in our high-tech world there are still large segments of the population that lack access to the drinking water and sanitation services most of us take for granted. The theme of this year’s World Water Week, Water for Society: Including All, seems particularly apt in light of this observation. Meanwhile, a new report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization (image at right) provides a “special focus” on global “WASH” (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) inequalities. A product of the Joint Monitoring Program, the report concludes that while significant progress has been made toward achieving universal access to water, sanitation, and hygiene, progress is uneven. And although there is a laudable commitment at the heart of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda to “leave no one behind,” the reality is there are many groups potentially in that precarious position. ...Read More »
