Water distiller filter filters may be the solution to water shortages in the US
Posted On July 20, 2021
An EPA scientist has said he believes filters could help reduce the number of water shortages across the country.
The scientist, Dr. Matthew Dolan, said in a statement that while some of the problems could be solved by water conservation, others would require new technologies.
The EPA scientist told Fox News the US has an “urgent need to improve its water distribution system” and suggested filters could be a solution.
Dolan said water filters could cut the need for millions of gallons of water every day.
“There are many cases where there is not enough water to go around,” he said.
“It is very costly, there are millions of people affected.
So, the filters we are trying to build for this use are very inexpensive, and if you use them, they can be very effective.”
Dolan’s comments came during a visit to an Arizona facility where a group of companies are trying a new type of filter, called a water distillate filter.
Dolas comments were released after the EPA said the agency was working to expand a water conservation program that focuses on water treatment plants and treatment plants.
He also said there were several “urgently needed” water treatment projects across the US.
The new program focuses on new technologies that can eliminate the need to collect and store large amounts of water.
The program has been underway for more than a year in Arizona, Tennessee and New Mexico, as well as in the United Kingdom.
It has been criticized for not being comprehensive enough, and has been in the works since January.
It was the subject of a House subcommittee hearing last month.
The technology is currently being tested in Arizona.
