Thursday's Daily Dose and international issue is safe water. Americans take our safe water supply for granted all thanks to the enforcement of our nation's safe water codes and standards. In other parts of the world, people are not so lucky. Safe drinking water is unavailable to an astounding 1.1 billion of our planet's population, and regrettably, in undeveloped countries a child dies every 15 seconds from a waterborne-related disease. There are various things consumers can do to help ensure that their water supply is safe:

  • Zero cost
    • Boiling water for household use
    • Using the sun to disinfect water
    • Storing water in plastic bottles
  • Low cost
    • Point-of-use disinfection: includes a variety of treatment procedures such as chlorine or other chemical disinfectants or UV lamps, various filters, or flocculation-disinfection formulations
    • Water filters
  • Long-term improvements
    • (FOR UNDERDEVELOPED COUNTRIES): Develop educational and promotional messages to target positive ideas about safe water and storage that include clarity, taste, good health, affordability and ease of use
