Monsoons are great for the soul. The pitter patter accompanied by a cup of hot beverage and some crispy snacks make our day, right? However soothing and relaxing it may sound, monsoons also bring with it a wave of water borne diseases. So, how do we stay safe and protect our drinking water during monsoon? It’s pretty simple, drink clean and safe drinking water.
In India, a large part of the population depends upon municipal water supply for their daily drinking water needs. Unfortunately, contamination of drinking water supply systems is a recurring problem in India. Pathogens and bacterial outbreaks and releasing of excessive ammonia or arsenic content in the supply water is common.
Additionally, leakage and mixing of sewage and drinking water pipes are also common. All these lead to contamination of drinking water during monsoon. This greatly increases the risk of water induced diseases like Diarrhea, Typhoid, Jaundice, Cholera, etc during this season. Among the most common bacteria that cause infections during the monsoon is E Coli.
Ensuring that your drinking water is safe for consumption is however, among the easiest way to avoid getting sick. Here are a few easy ways to ensure safety of your drinking water.
The first and easiest way to check on water quality. Color of the water, presence of suspended solids or turbidity which is the measure of relative clarity of water is a sure shot confirmation on low water quality. Filter it right to get clean drinking water.
Any strong smell of bleach or chemicals, you can be sure that the water has been treated with an excess dose of chlorine. This may render it unsafe for consumption. Filter it with high quality activated carbon filters to get safe drinking water.
