Water Pollution 2021: Two Water Disruption, Faster Recovery This Time

Water Treatment

One of the biggest headaches, whenever we have water disruption, is that once the water treatment plant starts working, it takes at least 2 days for the treated water to reach our homes.

The reason for the delay is due to the number of water treatment processes that need to be done before the water can be released to the end consumers. Those homes on hills like mine take even longer due to the lower water pressure. Image source: Dwyer
