Point-of-use (POU) and point-of-entry (POE) water treatment devices are cited in the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Water Security Research and Technical Support Action Plan as a topic requiring further research. POU devices are designed to purify only that portion of incoming water that is being used for drinking and cooking purposes, while POE devices treat all the water coming into a house or facility. What are the capabilities of these devices for treating or capturing the most likely contaminants. How should such devices be disposed of if they become contaminated. This paper investigates the use of these devices as a potential strategy for addressing water security concerns.
