In the case of high rain fall and flooding the high flow rate washes the agricultural chemicals and fertiliser into our river system. In the case of our towns and cities the water levels are such that the sewer systems back up and the effluent will flood our roads and houses located in flood prone areas.
Our rivers and reservoirs are being flooded with highly contaminated effluent. The water companies will have to increase the treatments that they use including increasing the amounts of chlorine that is used to kill the bacteria in the water that they treat.
To give you protection from the additional chlorine in your water as well as the possible contamination from bacteria and viruses that may not be fully treated we recommend that you look at either a drinking water system
or a whole house water filter system
that will filter all of the water in your house. Also a shower filter or Crystal Ball
bath dechlorinator will help people who suffer from dry skin.
