Details

Safe drinking water is one of the most important needs for survival. Unfortunately, it is a scarcity in many developing countries. Country XYZ has requested Ryerson to help them with creating a process or system to provide safe drinking water for this country.

From taking water samples and analyses of the raw water source in lakes and rivers, the following contaminants were found to be present:

  • Garbage
  • E.coli
  • Microbeads
  • Mercury

Deliverables

Create a 3-slide PowerPoint deck outlining your solution, including an explanation of your entire process, a process diagram/flow diagram, and reasoning on the chemicals you recommend using. Justify your solution and include any assumption you make.
