Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Cambodia
Cambodia is a nation of nearly fifteen million people in southeastern Asia, bordering the Gulf of Thailand, between Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos.
Cambodia is a a land of paddies and forests dominated by the Mekong River and Tonle Sap (Cambodia's huge freshwater lake).
Its major environmental issues include:
•illegal logging activities throughout the country and strip mining for gems in the western region along the border with Thailand which have resulted in habitat loss and declining biodiversity (in particular, destruction of mangrove swamps threatens natural fisheries);
• soil erosion;
• in rural areas, most of the population does not have access to potable water; and,
• declining fish stocks because of illegal fishing and overfishing
Total Renewable Water Resources: 476.1 cu km (1999)
Freshwater Withdrawal: 4.08 cu km/yr (1% domestic, 0% industrial, 98% agricultural)
Per capita freshwater withdrawal: 290 cu m/yr (2000)
Access to improved water sources: 61% of population
Access to improved sanitation facilities: 29% of population
The World Bank reports that at least 80 countries have water shortages and 2 billion people lack access to clean water. More disturbingly, the World Health Organization has reported that 1 billion people lack enough water to simply meet their basic needs, unfortunately in many countries water is scarce or contaminated.
Pure Aqua provides wide range of filtration and economical solutions based on the Cambodia’s water resources.
Cambodia’s main water resources are:
- Surface water “is water from river, rain water, lake or fresh water wetland, which can be treated using different methods, such as Ultrafiltration Systems, Media Water Filters, Brackish Water RO.
- Desalination can be used for water from ocean, or sea source, which can be treated using Sea Water Reverse Osmosis Systems; Desalination Systems
- Ground Water or brackish water is from water located in the pore space of soil and rock “Borehole well”, which can be treated using Reverse Osmosis Systems, Media Water Filters, Chemical Dosing, UV Sterilizers.
- Government water supply, which could have high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softeners, Media Water Filters
Pure Aqua manufacture water treatment systems that meets the World Health Organization requirements.
