All details at a glance

Public drinking water systems use many methods of water treatment to provide safe drinking water for their populations. Common steps in water treatment used in municipal water systems (predominantly surface water treatment) include: coagulation and flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection.

In addition to surface water treatment, there are two types of potable water reuse systems; indirect potable reuse and direct potable reuse. Indirect potable reuse uses a natural water buffer, such as a lake, river or a groundwater aquifer before the water is treated at a drinking water treatment plant. Direct potable reuse involves the treatment and distribution of water without a buffer.

Whether a water treatment plant uses surface water, or treated wastewater, or a combination of both, Forsta municipal water filters for water treatment plants efficiently remove particulate matter that could potentially obstruct flow and damage finer, more sensitive elements.

The progression of creating safe drinking water often culminates in a process of UV disinfection, microfiltration, ultrafiltration, and/or reverse osmosis (RO). Whether one or all of these water filtration/treatment methods are employed, reliable filtration of feed water before it reaches the final treatment stage is imperative. Forsta self-cleaning filters are ideal for suspended solids filtration, and are NSF certified for use in drinking water systems.
