Pollution Prevention for Drinking Water

 

      Pollution Prevention (P2) is a business model that encourages industry to conserve resources, reduce waste and recycle on site, in order of priority. Reducing use of resources (raw materials, virgin chemicals, water and energy) at the front end, we can often minimize waste (hazardous  waste, solid waste, wastewater and air emissions) at the back end. Resource conservation and waste reduction are even more desirable than recycling because the resources contributing to wastes are never used.  P2 should pay for itself in a resonable return-on-investment, and also in an improved regulatory status.  More on pollution prevention

 

The table below outlines potention pollution prevention opportunities for public water systems.
