Point Of Use Water Treatment Technologies

Access to safe drinking water in Uganda is still a challenge. Even where people have piped water supply, the safe water chain is often compromised. Thus the need to promote Point of Use (PoU) water treatment. The best option would be boiling water for drinking however a relative population cannot afford to boil water for drinking thus the need to promote low cost water treatment alternatives. Based on this, the Appropriate Technology Centre for Water and Sanitation (ATC) has profiled a number of Point of Use (PoU) Water Treatment Technologies to guide uptake and promotion. These Include the Three Pitcher filter, Solar Disinfection, Tiva Water filter, Spout filter, Sawyer filter, Ceramic filter, Life Straw filters, Biosand filter and Chlorine dispenser among others.
