The rainy season is here. Be mindful of contaminants and pollutants in the water supply. With the rainy season upon us, a collective sigh of relief is no doubt audible from millions of Filipinos dependent on this most precious of resource. However, another problem seems to rear its ugly head when the rains come --- water contamination.

Yes, water contamination. With dams, rivers, creeks, and streams overflowing; these bodies of water will no doubt carry debris and bacteria that can cause illness to end users—especially if they are the sources of water. Sure, the water utilities are doing a very good job in purifying Manila’s water needs, but how about those areas in the adjoining provinces that they don’t service?

Indeed, people living in these areas must be vigilant in keeping their water supply clean. Here are a few tips:

Be vigilant. If a water utility is servicing your area, alert them immediately if water pipes (especially those above ground) have cracks and/ or are submerged under flood and /or dirty waters. Cracks allow dirty water to contaminate the clean water running in the pipes and may contribute to the outbreak of disease.

Purify, purify, purify. One should always purify water, period. Use filters, boil or place purifying tablets to ensure that bacteria, organic debris and even, viruses are eliminated from our water supply.

Test the waters. If possible and if affordable, have your water tested to see if coliform bacteria and other microorganisms are present in your drinking water. These tests will allow you to correct the problem for a safer and more healthful water supply.
