  Chemists for Clean Water

  At reservoirs in Bangladesh, chemists arehard at work purifying local water supplies. These experts use filters toremove arsenic from the reservoirs, creating a potable water supply for nearbyresidents. Many of these experts are affiliated with 1 ChemistsWithout Borders (CWB). CWB is an organization that provides assistancefor crucial human health issues such as clean water. Operating not only in Bangladeshbut also in the United States and other nations, CWB relies on the efforts oftrained, professional chemists, as well as those of 2 volunteers’ interestedin entering the field.

  Professional chemists at CWB seek outprojects that can provide help directly to populations in need. Their workin 3 Bangladeshinvolves removing toxins, from the drinking water, primarily throughwater purification. CWB staff members create and give arsenic testing kits toBangladeshi locals and work with interpreters to 4 dissipate informationand instructions. 5 CWB also provides education about medicine,vaccines, and environmental sustainability.

  6 CWB also works with volunteers who arerigorously trained chemists. While some volunteers are concernedcitizens who want to assist with public education 7 campaigns. Others hold actualchemistry training. The education background for water chemists is varied butincludes many disciplines, including microbiology and geology. Students explorethese related fields to develop a more comprehensive view of the variables thataffect water quality. 8 They might study, for example, the microorganismsliving in water, or the effects of particular rocks and soil on water supplies. Volunteerswith a rich background in chemistry also help the CWB professionals with watertesting and supply kit creation. This practical experience is an excellentopportunity for prospective water chemists to gain insights into what the jobentails.

  9 A career in water chemistry leading toexciting travel and teaching opportunities, and working to de-contaminate watersupplies around the world is a rewarding experience for those who undertake it.Also worth noting is the fact that demand for skilled water chemists 10 are onthe rise. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of jobs inthis field is expected to grow 8 percent by 2022. 11 Looking beyond that, theneed for water chemists will likely continue to grow to meet the increasingwater demands of our burgeoning global population.
