Drinking water for arid areas

Decentralized water treatment and wastewater treatment

Pure and clean drinking water is the necessary basis for a healthy life

Sufficient drinking water free of bacteria and pollutants is the indispensable basis for a healthy life and for ensuring hygienic standards. Uncontaminated fresh water is also needed for the irrigation of agricultural land all over the world.

In the arid areas of our Earth, the evaporation rate is higher than that of precipitation. More water evaporates from the landscape than falls with the rain. Even in Germany, the situation is getting worse in some areas and groundwater supplies are shrinking.
In order to ensure a safe and reliable fresh water supply in these areas, the water must be treated from the existing sources. Various water resources can be used, such as:

  • Groundwater from wells
  • Surface water from lakes, rivers or streams
  • Brackish water from wells or sea bays
  • salty sea water

Weil Wasseraufbereitung GmbH from Osnabrück offers mobile, multi-stage water treatment plants for use even in remote areas or for temporary camps. The water treatment plants installed in standard overseas containers can be used for fresh water supply in remote villages, on islands, in military and refugee camps and many other areas that are not connected to the public drinking water system.

With a combination of pre-filtration, reverse osmosis (RO), post-treatment and a UV disinfection unit, the water is treated to fresh drinking water. With an optional downstream chlorination unit, storage tanks and the distribution network of the water pipes can also be disinfected, so that germ-free water up to your tap is guaranteed. Geogenically contaminated groundwater with increased arsenic or fluoride concentrations from the natural rock can also be used as raw water.

Drinking water treatment and wastewater treatment in one system

The combination of mobile drinking water treatment and the subsequent wastewater treatment ensures hygienic standards and avoids the contamination of local water resources with bacteria and pathogens on faeces. In this way, the fecal-oral short circuit with pathogenic microorganisms is prevented and a clean, hygienic overall situation is created.

The use of submerged membranes in wastewater treatment ensures a germ-free flow of the system, so that the treated wastewater can be reused for irrigation or as grey water for toilet flushing.

The compact Weil water treatment systems for the treatment of wastewater consist of a pre-treatment and a biological stage with submerged ultrafiltration modules. These membrane modules enable a very compact design, with a germ-free clear water drain at the same time. The release of pathogenic microorganisms is avoided, which significantly reduces the spread of infectious diseases. The risk of fecal-oral infections is significantly reduced.

The mobile water treatment plants of Weil Wasseraufbereitung are ideally suited to provide clean drinking water in remote places that meets the highest hygienic requirements and to avoid the risk of infection from untreated wastewater.

Sufficient drinking water even in high demand

The amount of drinking water production of the systems installed in containers can be adjusted according to customer requirements. Furthermore, the systems can be equipped with storage tanks and drinking water tanks in order to be able to serve increased water demand during the day. The long-term purity and sterility of the drinking water is ensured by recirculation via UV disinfection and optionally via the dosing of disinfectants. In this way, the supply of fresh water is guaranteed over the entire course of the day, even with high demand.
