Water quality is a constant challenge for disaster relief and developmental work in developing countries. You may find sufficient water sources but how do you know whether the water is drinkable? When the lives and welfare of your beneficiaries are dependent on your judgement, it is imperative you make the right decision.
Often, the staff or volunteer responsible for such work is in need of useful and concise information on water quality and filtration to act effectively in the field.
At the end of this workshop, the learner should be able to:
1. Identify critical water quality parameters to consider in the provision of drinking water
2. Decide on the water contaminants of significance
3. Apply the correct type of water filtration (if any) in the provision of drinking water
This workshop emphasises hands-on work by the learners in literature search and water quality testing.
