Key questions for our group

  • Where do we get drinking water?
  • Can sewer water be filtered to make clean drinking water? (environmental question)
  • How is water filtered? Do companies and cities use different techniques? If so, how are they different? How do they compare to home filters?
  • How does filtering affect the composition of the water?
  • What other processing is required?
