Clean Water Matters Now More than Ever, New Book Explains Why
Clean Water for Developing Countries Is a Complete Guide for People and Organizations to Use in Developing Countries
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Los Angeles, CA – With world population projected to reach 9.8 billion in 2050 and over one billion people currently without access to clean water, humans need to come up with sustainable ways to preserve and provide water. In his innovative book, Clean Water for Developing Countries, Dr. John A. Dracup gives a comprehensive guide on how to develop clean water.
According to Dr. John A. Dracup, we have the technology and knowledge to turn the most polluted water into clean water, all it takes is determination and funding. Cost, sustainability, cultural differences, and acceptance can prevent developing countries from accessing drinking water.
“The problem is that it is expensive and the developing countries do not have the funds, so they have to rely on non-governmental agencies, NGOs around the world who have the technology, know-how and want to help them. You also need them to show the data to break down the cultural barriers,” explains the author.
Drinking contaminated water causes millions of deaths each year worldwide. These deaths are easily avoidable. Water-born illnesses such as typhoid and cholera can be minimized once steps are taken to secure clean water for everyone.
Operations such as filtration, disinfection, safe storage, transport, pumps, sanitation, which are the stepping-stones of making clean water, are expertly outlined in the pages of the book.
Dr. Dracup taps into his 50-plus years of research and teaching in water resource engineering, hydrology, and clean water for developing countries and reviews all details of water from the source, quality, quantity, and community involvement. Clean Water for Developing Countries is an excellent supplement for educators as well as a guide for people, groups, and organizations interested in bringing clean water to the areas that need it most.
Clean Water for Developing Countries is available on Amazon, Barnes & Nobel and other major retailers.
