How Water is Contaminated

Water that contains microbes and other pollutants is contaminated. Human and animal faeces are the main source of water contamination. Water is contaminated when people and animals defecate in an open field or near a water source and when latrines are not properly used and maintained. The faeces get into the water and are spread to everyone who uses that water. Contaminated water can come through rivers, streams, wells and is carried to our homes in pipelines and buckets.

In this water sanitation and Hygiene training you will learn how water is contaminated.

Water can also be contaminated when:

- Containers for storing water are not cleaned properly

- Water storage tanks are not covered to protect against contamination

- The bucket and rope that are used to pull water out of the well were in contact with something dirty (hands, animals, ground)

Water can look dirty when it is contaminated, but even clear water can contain microbes that cause illness. Not all sources of water are good quality water.

Rainwater is pure when falling from the sky, but may become dirty when landing on the roof. Groundwater can be of good quality, but may be contaminated with chemicals or latrine waste. Surface water is of poor quality because there are many so ways it can become contaminated.

Contaminated Water Contains Microbes That Make Us Sick

Key Message: Contaminated water can make us sick.

Possible Questions:

•  Have you or someone in the family been sick recently?

•  Do you know why you or your family was sick?

•  Have you or your family ever become sick from contaminated water?

•  How much money did you spend the last time someone in your family went to the doctor?

Content:

When water is dirty, we know that it is not good to drink. We may think clear water is safe to drink, but that is not always the case. There may be very small living things called microbes, pathogens or micro-organisms (depending on the language and culture) in the water. These microbes can be worms, parasites, and bacteria. Most microbes are so tiny that we cannot see them with our eyes.

If we drink contaminated water, we may become ill with:

•  Diarrhoea

•  Vomiting

•  Stomach pain

•  Fever

(Talk about any water-related diseases that are common in the area.)

When we get sick, we may have to visit the doctor or even stay in the hospital. If we require medications to cure these illnesses, it can cost a lot of money. Sickness can cause us to miss school or work. Some illnesses are so bad that we may die.

There are a lot of consequences of using contaminated water.

Check for Understanding:

•  What can you see in the water?

•  What is something that you can't see in the water, but might still be there?

•  What happens if you drink water that has microbes in it?

•  What are the illnesses that we can get when we drink contaminated water?

•  What are some consequences of being sick?

Stop Microbes - Get Good Water

Key Message: You can have good water if you from protect the water source, treat your water and store your treated water safely.

Possible Questions:

If post is used as an introduction:

•  What do you see on this page?

•  How do you think these activities will help make your family healthier?

If poster is used as a review:

•  How can you get good water?

Content:

Drinking good water will help stop the transfer of microbes and prevent you and your family from getting sick.

First, you must Protect Your Source water. Rainwater should be stored in a closed container with a lid to prevent microbes from entering. Wells should be covered, with a channel to divert wastewater away, to prevent microbes getting in. Surface water sources like ponds should be fenced to stop animals. Springs should be protected with a spring or catchment box.

Second, you can Treat Your Water in the home to ensure the water is safe for the family. Water treatment includes three steps: sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection. There are many good ways to treat your water. We will talk more about household water treatment in the next posters.

To Protect Your Treated Water use a storage container with a lid. A good storage container has a tap or narrow opening to pour out the water. Do not store your water in open containers. Stored water becomes contaminated with microbes if you use a cup or dipper to get the water out. Teach children to pour out the water when they need to drink or use a storage container with a tap.

Check for Understanding:

If poster is used as an introduction:

•  What are some ways to get good water?

If poster is used as a review:

•  How do we protect our source water?

•  Is it necessary to treat our water before drinking it?

•  What are some examples of methods to treat the water?

•  What type of storage containers will keep our treated water safe?
