Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Mauritius


Mauritius, officially the Republic of Mauritius, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) off the southeast coast of the African continent. The country includes the islands of Mauritius, Rodrigues, Agaléga and Saint Brandon and the part of Mascarene Island.

Mauritius consists of 25 major river basins and the largest are the Grand River South East and the Grand River North West. Most rivers are perennial, originating from the central plateau. Discharge to the sea is estimated to be 0.5 cubic kilometers per year (km3/year). Mauritius has five main aquifers. Total renewable water resources are estimated at 2.751 km3/year. Total exploitable water resources are estimated at 1.083 km3/year. Total dam capacity is 93 million m3. There are five main storage reservoirs (Mare aux Vacoas, La Ferme, Mare Longue, La Nicoliere, Piton du Milieu) and one impounding rockfill dam (Midlands Dam). 

The World Bank reports that at least 80 countries have water shortages and 2 billion people lack access to clean water. More disturbingly, the World Health Organization has reported that 1 billion people lack enough water to simply meet their basic needs, unfortunately in many countries water is scarce or contaminated.

Pure Aqua provides wide range of filtration and economical solutions based on the Mauritius' water resources.

Mauritius' main water resources are:

  • Surface water is water from river, lake or fresh water wetland, which can be treated using different methods, such as Ultrafiltration Systems, Brackish Water RO.
  • Desalination can be used for water from ocean, or sea source, which can be treated using Seawater Reverse Osmosis Systems; Desalination Systems.
  • Ground Water or brackish water is from water located in the pore space of soil and rock “Borehole well”, which can be treated using Reverse Osmosis Systems, Chemical Dosing, UV Water Sterilizer.
  • Government water supply, which could have high level of hardness or high level of chlorine, can be treated with Water Softener System, Media Water Filters.

Water challenges in Mauritius
Mauritius is currently considered a water-stressed nation and with no reforms in place, it is possible of falling under the water-scare classification:

  • Poor infrastructure for water production  
  • Climate change impact on water sources
  • Hazardous activities throughout the land
  • Shifting population - from rural areas to urban areas  
  • Excess water that is non revenue
  • Fragmented institutions & legislation
