Access to clean drinking water is a basic need,
and safe water supplies, hygienic sanitation and effective water management
programs are fundamental to human health.
The need for uninterrupted, reliable and
trustworthy water supplies is reaching alarming levels in many geographical
areas. This urgency is felt whether it involves water disinfection at large
municipal water treatment plants that service the greater metropolitan areas or
smaller rural areas supplied from boreholes and other water sources.
Surface and underground water sources can
contain harmful contaminants and micro-organisms. These must be removed from
the water in order to achieve a water quality that is fit for use. Treating
these water sources also aids in preserving water system infrastructure and
avoids re-contamination by maintaining a reliable and consistent disinfectant
residual level all along the piping networks and in the reservoirs.
The World Health Organization recognizes that
certain products containing sources of active chlorine are an effective water
treatment method. Lonza is one of the largest producers of Calcium Hypochlorite
and provides complete and innovative water-treatment solutions, including
chemicals and engineered feeding units to meet specific needs.

areas, Lonza’s product range dedicated to potable water tackles this obstacle
head on, whether it is the need to sanitize water in reservoirs, storage tanks,
boreholes or other isolated water sources.
dependent products are suitable for manual dosing
