Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in El Salvador


El Salvador is a nation of six million people in Central American bordering Guatemala and Honduras. Its coast fronts along the Pacific Ocean.

It is the smallest Central American country and the only one without a coastline on Caribbean Sea.

Its main environmental issues include:
• Deforestation; soil erosion;
• Water pollution; and,
• Contamination of soils from disposal of toxic wastes.

All of El Salvador is included in the Mesoamerica Biodiversity Hotspot as defined by Conservation International. The Central American dry forests are an interesting ecoregion, stretching along the Pacific Coast, it corresponds to a tropical habitat that has a prolonged dry season of five to eight months and is home to important plant and animal species, as well as a significant degree of endemism. The Central American montane forests ecoregion is made up of forest patches occurring in an island-like mosaics on the isolated tops and slopes of the highest mountains of Central America, from southern Mexico into northern Nicaragua. The Central American pine-oak forests ecoregion, which is contained within several Central American countries, supports a rich assortment of conifer species. The mangrove ecosystems of this Northern dry Pacific Coast ecoregion are a truly unique ecosystem and serve as the basis for most life in the surrounding environment.
