Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Tanzania
Tanzania is a nation of fourty three-and-a-half million people in east Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean, between Kenya to the north and Mozambiqueto the south.
It has plains along coast, a central plateau and highlands in the north and the south.
The highest point in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro (5895 metres), also lies within the nation of Tanzania. It is one of only two mountains on the continent that has glaciers (the other is Mount Kenya);
The western border region lies in the Albertine Rift region (the western branch of Africa's Great Rift System) and lies along two of Africa's Great Lakes, Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi (Nyasa).
Tanzania is bordered by three of the largest lakes on the continent: Lake Victoria (the world's second-largest freshwater lake) in the north, Lake Tanganyika (the world's second deepest) in the west, and Lake Nyasa (Lake Malawi) in the southwest
Tanzania's major environmental issues include:
• Soil degradation
• Destruction of coral reefs threatens marine habitats
• Recent droughts affected marginal agriculture
• Wildlife threatened by illegal hunting and trade, especially for ivory
It is susceptible to flooding on the central plateau during the rainy season; and to drought.
Total Renewable Water Resource: 91 cu km (2001)
Freshwater Withdrawal: Total: 5.18 cu km/yr (10% domestic, 0% industrial, 89% agricultural).
Per capita Freshwater Withdrawal:: 135 cu m/yr (2000)
Access to improved sources of drinking water: 54% of population
Access to improved sanitation facilities: 24% 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 Tanzania's water resources.
Tanzania's main water resources are:
Surface water “is water from river, 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 manufactures water treatment systems that meet the World Health Organization requirements.
