Environmental Issues

At Eagle Water Treatment Systems we believe that water is not only a resource, it is a life source. We all share the responsibility to ensure a healthy, secure and sustainable water supply for our communities, environment, and economy – our quality of life depends on it. A safe water supply is fundamental to the health of every individual and strategically important to the economic growth and well being of communities. Our everyday lives have an impact on our waterways, rivers, lakes and oceans. For example, when rain falls or snow melts, dirt, debris, oil, antifreeze, detergents, pesticides, pet excrements, and all kinds of other pollutants get washed from driveways, parking lots and streets into storm drains. This polluted water is immediately transported to nearby streams and rivers and into our drinking water supply.

We have reached to a point that, all sources of our drinking water, including municipal water systems, wells, lakes, rivers, and even glaciers, contain some level of contamination. Contaminants range from naturally occurring minerals to man-made chemicals and by-products. While many contaminants are found at low enough levels not to cause immediate discomfort or sickness, it is proven that even low-level exposure to many common contaminants will, over time, cause severe illness including liver damage, cancer, and other serious ailments. Even the chemicals commonly used to treat municipal water supplies such as chlorine and fluoride are toxic and are known to have significant adverse effects on the human body.

Environmental water contamination is the leading worldwide cause of death and disease and it adversely affects over 1 billion people every day in developing countries. Even here in Canada and the United States we often struggle with water pollution caused by natural disasters and human activities. A recent national report on our water quality revealed that 45% of assessed stream miles, 47% of assessed lake acres, and 32% of assessed bays were classified as polluted. Ground and well water sources may also become contaminated due to the problems associated with industrial dumping, hydraulic fracking, and agricultural by-products.
