Drinking Water

Drinking water supply in the Serbian province Vojvodina – bank filtration instead of treatment of the heavily arsenic-polluted, alkaline groundwater

The project participants examine possible methods for obtainment of drinking water in the province Vojvodina (Serbia), in which more than 500,000 inhabitants have access only to drinking water that exceeds the EU drinking water limit values by a factor of up to 20. As the region's groundwater is alkaline, rich in humic matter and heavily polluted with arsenic, bank filtration appears to be the most promising alternative to obtaining drinking water from the groundwater.
