HOW TO SURVIVE BOIL WATER ADVISORY (BWA): BUSINESS AND RESIDENT ALIKE

Posted on March 23, 2016 by Marsha Yang | 0 comments

 

Without doubt, safe drinking water keeps us going. We use water for a whole lot of things such as drinking, making ice, cooking, and much more. However, over time, drinking water gets contaminated with microorganisms (which are ubiquitous) and this possess health risks to individuals and great financial losses to companies that depend portable water for their processes (especially food handling industries like restaurants, food processing industries, etc.) as they have to make good efforts and significant steps to ensure food safety so as not to put the health of people at risk. As a measure to keep the people safe, Government agencies (including municipal water suppliers) issue directives to inform the general public of this threat and the potential danger of consuming contaminated water, recommending that water be brought to a rolling boil for 2 minutes (to destroy all harmful microorganism and bacteria) before consumption. This public health advisory is termed “Boil-Water Advisory (BWA).” Alternatively, water can be obtained from outside the boil water advisory area (usually other cities with safe water) or bottled water can be used. This invariably increases the demand for bottled water and household bleach—good news to grocery store owners.

Let’s face it; boil water advisory can be very costly to families and businesses. Going without clean water impacts homes and frustrates businesses for more than a week as everyone patiently waits for days for water treatment plants to treat and circulate the water to parts of the implicated city.  Department of state gives an almost unending list of statuses for companies to adhere to. And to complicate issues, boil water advisory could occur more than once within a space of months if the right measures are not put in place—and its precautionary measures can be very costly, too. Some companies even go as far as shipping safe water from other cities or using bottled water throughout the production process! Industries that can’t afford to bear the cost of constant sanitation would rather shut down and wait for the time being, losing significant amount of money and clients to their competitors. How expensive this could be! The question then becomes:

HAW CAN FAMILIES AND BUSINESSES ALWAYS STAY ON THE SAFE SIDE?

For families, water can be boiled for 2 minutes before drinking. Water can be bought from outside the BWA areas, it can be frozen to kill bacteria, or water treatment systems can be installed in homes to kill viruses and waterborne microorganisms. However, standard treatment which use reverse osmosis or ion exchange for water treatment is less effective as it has little or no effect on waterborne viruses and bacteria.

But there’s good news…

Research has shown that UV (Ultraviolet) water purification system is the most efficient and cost-effective water treatment method for both residents and industries. It uses ultraviolet light to ensure complete destruction of 99.99% of all forms of microorganisms—including stubborn bacteria (e.g. Coliform, E. Coli etc).  This method is energy efficient as it works without heat or chemicals. And the beauty of this method is that it is suitable for both home, restaurants, manufacturing processes and industries—it can purify thousands of liters of water per minute, producing large volumes of contamination-free drinking water in just one minute.
