Household-level Drinking Water Treatment

Household-level approaches to drinking water treatment and safe storage are also commonly referred to as managing the water at the “point-of-use”. This term or its abbreviation “POU” typically describe the same procedures as other abbreviations derived from household water treatment, like “HHWT” or “HWT” or “HWTS” (The “S” in “HWTS” refers to safe storage). “Household water management” is also commonly used, and can encompass both treatment and storage. All these terms can refer to a variety of treatment procedures, for example, with chlorine or other chemical disinfectants, sunlight or UV lamps, various filters, or flocculation-disinfection formulations.
