The UK government has published its recommendations for the water purification of public water supplies.
The UK’s water authorities have recommended that consumers use either a Philips or a water purifying device such as the Philips water purizer.
The government said it had received about 3,600 comments on the proposal.
It said it would consider feedback from the public.
The UK’s Water Technology Strategy 2016-2020 aims to reduce water pollution and water use by 50% by 2025, and improve water quality and water supply in 10 key areas: water treatment, treatment of wastewater, treatment and disposal of untreated sewage, wastewater management and recycling of wastewater.
The strategy calls for the UK to become a “world leader in water and sanitation” by 2030.
In terms of the water supply, the strategy includes the introduction of new technology such as smart filtration, desalination, desalinisation, wastewater treatment and reuse.
The aim is to replace old water-intensive water-using systems such as desalinated seawater tanks, treated drinking water, and tap water.
“Water purification is a key element in meeting the Government’s ambitious target to halve water pollution by 2030,” said the strategy.
“By 2025, we expect that more than 50% of UK households will be able to use clean water.”
The strategy calls on the UK government to: Establish an industry standard for water purifications; Reach an agreement with water purifies for the first time; Reach a consensus on a standard of quality that will allow water purify to be offered as an option in new and existing water services; And implement a water conservation plan that will be based on the latest water-quality and wastewater-management standards.
There is also a water quality target, which the government said was a key objective of the Water Technology Strategic Plan 2016-2019.
A spokesperson for the Home Office said it was a matter for the Government.
It said: “The Government is looking at the comments received and will consider them carefully before making any final decisions.”
