Common challenge

The common challenge tackled by DOC2C's is the existing low-technology infrastructure for drinking water production, soon inadequate to ensure supply of excellent water quality while adapting to pollution and climate change.

Production of safe drinking water is increasingly under pressure in the area. The main concern is the growing concentration of Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC) in surface water. DOC reduces the efficiency of all treatment steps and threatens water quality due to emerging substances, formation of harmful disinfection by-products and lowered biostability in the network.
