Safety of materials and chemicals used in the production and distribution oif drinking-water . report on a WHO Expert Consultation, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, 23-24 January 1997
AbstractPotentially hazardous chemicals in drinking-water may derive from treatment chemicals or construction materials used in water supply systems. The WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality indicate that such chemicals are best controlled by appropriate specifications for the chemicals and materials used. Twelve experts met at NSF-Inernational in Ann Arbor, MI, USA, a WHO collaborating centre for research on drinking-water safety and treatment, to discuss the development of a WHO monograph on the control of materials and chemicals used in the production and distribution of drinking-water. The meeting made a series of detailed recommendations regarding the structure and content of the monograph. Following the consultation, immediate action will be taken to bring to completion this monograph, which will be linked to the WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality

Khoury, S.; Graczyk, T.; Burnham, G.; Jurdi, M.; Goldman, L. (2016-08)Drinking water at Shatila Palestinian Refugee Camp in Beirut, Lebanon is of poor quality and unpredictably intermittent quantity. We aimed to characterize drinking water sources and contamination at Shatila and determine how drinking water can be managed to reduce community health burdens. We interviewed the Popular Committee, well owners, water vendors, water shopkeepers and preschool administrators about drinking water sources, treatment methods and the population served. Water samples from the sources and intermediaries were analysed for ...
