The complexity of the problem only increases

Detection is difficult; Contaminants are colourless, odourless & tasteless

Treatment & purification is a challenge; Boiling water for drinking only compounds the problem

Contaminants are geogenic & occur naturally

Today, there are fragmented attempts at technology solutions & an over dependence on RO systems

While technological innovations exist, sustainability is a key challenge. Suitable technologies must be low cost, simple, easy to maintain, environmentally and culturally appropriate. RO systems waste ~ 30-90% of water, are energy intensive & pose challenges in disposing off waste concentrated water
