A high level of fluoride in drinking water can be dangerous for human health. A research team led by Simon Lewis from the University of Bath’s Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies has developed simple water test to detect the level of fluoride in drinking water. This is a simple color-changing test and will help to prevent from a bone disease.
High levels of fluoride are found in drinking water sources in parts of India, China, East Africa, and North America. The levels of fluoride are regularly monitored and controlled by water treatment systems in developed countries. But, in some parts of India, people are using unprocessed water from wells, which is contaminated with high levels of fluoride.
Researcher Simon Lewis said that, they have created a molecule that simply changes a color and detects higher level of fluoride in Drinking Water rapidly. The test does not require any water testing lab and trained operator to carry the test. It is a low cost disposable test strip and anyone can use it easily. The new research published in the journal Chemical Communications stated that, this simple color-changing test detects high levels of fluoride quickly and selectively.

As per the latest news India is leading the world in air and water pollution. Pollution has the large impact on human health. The Government stepped forward to control the water pollution. The major source of water pollution in India is untreated sewage. So, the Union environment ministry has tightened the norms for the quality of water which is discharge into water bodies and other sites by the sewage treatment plants (STPs).
According to the survey, only 3 out of India’s 28 states and union territories in India are meeting the required operating standards of sewage treatment. The environment ministry improved standards for four parameters to determine water quality, namely; pH value, Bio-Chemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Suspended Solids (TSS) and Fecal Coliform (FC).
These new norms will be applied to all sewage treatment plants after June 2019, and all existing plants have to comply with them within the next five years. These standards do not apply, if the treated sewage discharged into a water bodies is used for industrial purposes. The standards will be applied only if; it is come in the contact with the human bodies.
The main motive of the government is to encourage reuse and recycling. However, it is more necessary to control the sewage discharged into the water bodies because if the sewage is more than the capacity of sewage treatment plants (STPs) or the sewerage network, then it will be critical to handle the situation. All the industries and the local bodies should come up together and cooperate to the government to fight with the water pollution.
