First RO Water Quality Standards
Maintaining water purity is important for for community and individual homes.
The first municipality to implement a reverse osmosis process happened in 1977 in Cape Coral, Florida. As the first large-scale initial RO process it was able to provide up to 3 million gallons of RO filtered water per day (11.35 million liters).
By 1985, the Cape Coral facility was the largest low-pressure reverse osmosis plant in the world – producing nearly 15 million gallons today.
Due to the increase in popularity and tech advancements, reverse osmosis has become an affordable water filtration systems for homes.
Without water quality standards, incidents such as Flint, Michigan are less likely.
Today water quality standards are being taken more seriously – the EPA coordinates with cities and states to constantly test water quality levels.
To avoid issues like Flint, Michigan the “Lead and Copper Rule” was revised to help reduce lead and copper levels in drinking water.
