Summary:This video from the American Chemistry Council highlights some of the ways chemistry is involved in keeping our water supply flowing and our drinking water safe. Did you know that aluminum and chloride salts remove impurities to keep water clean? Or that phosphate-based chemistries and epoxy resins help keep metals out of water systems by preventing pipe corrosion and creating barriers between water pipes and the water they carry? Chemistry is involved in water conservation too: Chemistry-driven purification technologies allow water to be recycled and reused. Share these and other facts in your middle and high school lessons.
