Membrane water treatment is a process that removes unwanted constituents from water. A membrane is a barrier that allows certain substances to pass through while blocking others. Water treatment facilities use various types of membranes and processes to clean surface water, groundwater, and wastewater to produce water for industry and for drinking. It is a multi-billion dollar industry that is growing as a result of increasing concerns about contaminants in water and decline in safe, clean, easily accessible existing water sources.

Water is one of the most important commodities that supports life on earth but very few understand how hard it is to get clean, potable freshwater.

Every day, water goes through a cycle that sees it flow from land, to the seas and then evaporates into the atmosphere through the processes of evaporation and precipitation.

Top 5 Uses for Reclaimed Wastewater

Posted by Julie Nemeth-Harn on Jan 16, 2018 1:10:00 PM

Whether commercial or residential, the modern world is currently seeing an increase in water reclamation practices. Reclaimed water, perhaps better described as "recycled water," is wastewater that has been filtered and treated for reuse, thereby limiting the need for fresh water use. This practice has increased in popularity over recent years. GAO reported 36 states as using reclaimed water in 2013, compared to just 23 states in 2003.
