Once upon a time, when I was young, there was a song heard almost everywhere here in Sweden among teenagers: Pollution pollution It was a song by Tom Lehrer. While most of his songs can be described as left of the left back in 60’s and 70’s, that song was talking about a situation that were at hand, here in Sweden as well as in US and still is. We all want pure clear water, but are we willing to pay the price? For the cost today is less than it will be in the future to fix problems caused today. As was it back then.

It can be an accident such as a train might be carrying dangerous chemicals and something makes a wagon tip over. It can be an overflow of water in an industries drain system caused by too heavy rain in the sewersystem from industry to a purification plant for a village, a town or a district. Many different situations can happen. But whenever chemicals comes directly out in watersystem or indirectly slips down to ground water levels, the cleaning will cost. Because all of us want to have pure clean water….. don’t we?

What we all have to call our politicians and industrialist for is a question: Are you willing to help people to have drinkable water in the tap, in kitchen as well as elsewhere?

It will cost society a bit more than the so called CO-2 threat that never ever been a problem has caused the last years. That’s might be the reason why so many willingly tried that one instead of facing the real problems: Pure clean water and fresh air…..

More money when in start but less money all in all when total figures are on the table.

You might want to contact Holmen in Norrkoping, Sweden. They were one of the first, if not the first, to go for closed process-systems. This means that less chemicals are needed when reused after cleaning in the closed system. Holmen
When I was young i followed my father when he participated in a pretest before the consecration of the closed system.

If you are in farming business, you might want to contact The Lake Vättern Society of Water Conservation they do have a long experience in these questions as you can read. Back in 1957 I myself participated, eight years old, when my father made the investigations checking water and air, chemical as well as biological, temperatures 2 meter over waterlevel, 1 resp 3 resp 10 meters under… (we did it not only there but in many places in east Sweden south of Laka Maelaren….) Please remember that today Lake Vättern’s water is close to drinkable. Some years ago it was too pure…. and back in 1957 it was all but pure and clean.
