Bringing safe and potable drinking water to communities worldwide.

 
 
 

Maximize resources with wastewater and other municipal water treatments

Water sources for municipal localities vary from ground water to lakes and rivers — even the sea itself. Few water sources remain pristine enough to be consumed without some form of treatment, however.

Innovation plays a major role in ensuring a clean, safe, and affordable supply of water. DuPont Water Solutions offers expertise and advanced technologies that enable municipal water-treatment solutions such as wastewater treatment, drinking-water production, and trace contaminate removal.

Deliver people water cost-effectively

Because water sources vary so greatly, an area’s ability to produce drinking water may have unique challenges. We assess water quality and distribution systems to help find the right solution. Whether it’s a relatively clean or complex water source, we can help bring clean drinking water to communities as cost-effectively as possible with treatments such as desalination, wastewater treatment, and advanced filtration.

See our case study: DuPont's Ultrafiltration Solutions Produce Drinking Water to 2,500 People in Croatia.

Make the most of your resources

As populations grow and urbanization rises, municipal water treatment for reusing wastewater presents a reliable and safe option for many communities. Reclaimed municipal wastewater minimizes the need for local regions to import water, which can be an expensive and energy-intensive endeavor.

Our municipal water-treatment solutions remove solids, chemicals, bacteria, and other unhealthy contaminants from wastewater resulting in clean, potable water for residents.

Improve the purity of water streams 

Trace contaminants are elements, complexes, and compounds that are both human-made and/or naturally occurring in water (at very low levels) and must be removed from drinking water or wastewater for health or regulatory reasons.

Using selective contaminant removal or advanced filtration technology, you can remove trace contaminants such as boron, chromate, and more from water through a wide range of technologies. 

Our solutions address the removal of:

  • Boron.
  • Chromate.
  • Nitrate.
  • Perchlorate.
  • Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA).
  • Organics and color.
  • Other compounds, such as radium, uranium, and selenium.
