Abstract

Water is a component of the environment, that its quality is influenced by the health of environment. On the other side, improving environmental health is also directly related to the quality and quantity of water. A healthy water resource must be able to supply safe and sufficient water for the society [3]. For this purpose, the resources have to be under monitoring and control of health responsible regularly; so that by being aware of the presence of any potential contaminants in water, control measures should be applied. Provision of safe water and proper management of wastewaters play the major role in reducing water-related infectious diseases [5]. A set of measures on improving the environment and the health, safe and adequate water supply can reduce 40 to 100% of water related communicable diseases. In this study, the effect of active carbon, as an actual absorbent, on the elimination of turbidity, color, taste and smell has been investigated in order to improve the quality of drinking water [6]. The results of the study indicated that active carbon, as a strong absorbent with high porosities and broad lateral surface is effective to eliminate turbidity, color, and smell.
