Reverse Osmosis & Water Treatment in Mayotte


Mayotte,  is an overseas department and region of France consisting of a main island, Grande-Terre (or Maore), a smaller island, Petite-Terre (or Pamanzi), and several islets around these two. The archipelago is located in the northern Mozambique Channel in the Indian Ocean, namely between northwestern Madagascar and northeastern Mozambique.

The Syndicat intercommunal water and sanitation Mayotte ( SIEAM ) requested the International Office for Water ( IOW ) to provide technical support to the production and distribution of drinking water on the island . The very specific local context of Mayotte ( population density , needs exponential water , tropical climate, limited financial capabilities are all aspects ) makes it difficult to correct evolution of drinking water on the island.  The development will require the implementation of administrative compliance resources and facilities . To help the union of water in this process, the National Centre for training in water ( NWTC ) has , throughout 2003, participated in several actions , focused on the quality of water distributed the population. Actions have included the knowledge of the quality of natural waters of the island, improving the functioning of the water purification plants, monitoring of water quality , the establishment of a pilot processing sludge.

Water is officially drinkable. But it sometimes has a taste of soil or mold. Water sold in supermarkets and grocery stores under the name "water table" is much better. One solution: water source, quite expensive (about 1.20 euro a liter bottle and a half). 

Warning to waste: Water is scarce in Mayotte. The prévisonnistes of SIEAM (Syndicat Intercommunal Water and Sanitation Mayotte) provide that if the provisions are not taken, there will be no drinking water in Mayotte since 2020! 

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 Mayotte's water resources.

Mayotte's 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 & treatment in Mayotte
Mayotte’s water problems exist in the form of severe pressure from a rapidly growing population that demand greater water consumption. Droughts have accelerated this underlying issue and climate change has persisted to be an extreme inhibitor of island nations such as Mayotta, which are more vulnerable to unpredictable weather events and elevated sea levels.
