Brookshaw St Water TreatmentScarcity of water affects over 40% of the population globally, and it’s an essential resource for all living beings. Water to drink, hygiene and sanitation are basic rights but many struggle to access them. Since 1990, 2.1 billion people have gained improved water and sanitation services. Even so, there is an acknowledged issue with a decrease in the quality of drinking water. By 2050 it is estimated that at least one in four people will be impacted by water scarcity.

This problem already affects more than 40% of the global population, and global warming along with desertification will only exacerbate matters. Humans are the main cause of water pollution, as we dump all kinds of waste into rivers and the sea. This dumped, contaminated water means that around 80% of untreated waste water enters the environment.

Water treatment comes in a range of forms, and is a crucial process in avoiding contaminated waterways. Water treatment processes differ depending on the eventual intended use of the water. These can include water for drinking, industrial supply, irrigation, river flow maintenance and recreation along with many other uses. Many people are not aware of the growing need for water treatment throughout the planet. Only 2.5% of the total water on earth is freshwater, and of this there is only 0.4% that can safely be consumed by us.

At Brookshaw Stuart, we are proud to work with water treatment specialists, as we carry out the installation and maintenance of high performance water treatment facilities. It is exceptionally important that systems in places like Leeds, are functional, reliable and fit for purpose. Our fabricated chemical trays for instance are used to ensure there is no contamination at clean water sites in North, West and South Yorkshire.
