                        Municipal Water Treatment

                        Clean water is your goal. However, getting water pure enough to drink can be a complex operation. It requires the right set of chemicals to remove contaminants, a consistent, repeatable water purification process and a complete understanding of government regulations. 

                        With our deep knowledge and understanding of chemical applications and regulatory requirements, Univar Solutions can provide you guidance and expertise to identify the vital chemicals for your water treatment formulation.   Through a team-oriented approach, we offer technical assistance, on-site evaluations and specialized market expertise to address complex water treatment requirements.

                        Univar Solutions offers solutions for both drinking water and wastewater treatment processes.

                        Drinking water

                        Drinking water can be obtained from ground water sources (e.g. wells and aquifers) or from surface water sources (e.g. lakes, rivers or purpose-built reservoirs). The primary aim in water treatment is the elimination of any pathogenic microorganisms so it is safe for consumption. 


                        Wastewater can be obtained from homes, businesses, and industries and delivered to faculties for treatment before it can be reused. The primary aim in wastewater treatment is to remove particles, suspended solids, organic pollutants, nitrogen and phosphorous using a combination of physical, biological, and chemical processes.
