Chemicals in City Drinking Water
We sold a water distiller to a person in Ohio awhile back and he told me he was buying it because he worked in a city water treatment plant. He told me that it was not really a water plant anymore; it was a chemical plant. I asked him to write me a letter and explain what was put in their city drinking water so I could put it on my website. Below is what he wrote in his letter.
These chemicals are used for processing surface water. Other water plants use these and more, depending on what part of the country you live in and what they are trying to remove from the raw water. The amounts are expressed in milligrams per liter. There are 3.785 liters to 1 gallon.
Aluminum Sulfate: Liquid or Alum 55mg/L. This is used to settle most of the silt or mud in the water at the beginning of the process. Most settles out in the first stage of processing.
Chlorine Gas: about 4.5mg/L. This is used to kill harmful bacteria and remains in the water. (Toxic)
Lime: This will vary depending on how much dirt is in the water when you start. About 80 to 100mg/L of lime is settled in the later stages of purification. I say most because we are not required to test the amount of residual lime in the water.
Fluorosilicic Acid: 1.0mg/L is added so you will have fluoride in the water to help prevent tooth decay. Click on the following link to see a video about how the Media is recognizing the perils of Fluoridated Water. (Toxic)
Zinc Ortho Phosphate or Zinc: 1.6mg/L. This is added to keep impurities in the water in suspension so they don’t settle out in the city’s main lines and clog them.
These chemicals are added to every liter of water processed. When you understand there are 80 to 100 million gallons processed every day in the summer months, you can see there are tons of these chemicals used every day. Water plants in the Southwest use additonal chemicals to treat their water.
