Drinking water treatment plants (DWTP)

Your water, clean water

The raw water reaching the drinking water treatment plant (DWTP) after catchment contains organic and inorganic matter and microorganisms (pathogens and nonpathogens). Consequently, the water normally has a colour and turbidity that prevents its direct consumption.

At the DWTP, a number of different processes (roughing filtration, flocculation and decantation, filtration and disinfection) turn it into water suitable for consumption, i.e. drinking water.

Select  your municipality and consult the purification processes applied. You can also obtain information on the  SINAC (National Drinking Water Information System) website
