Boston Herald - 12/08/2016
The deadly bacteria reportedly linked to the Flint, Mich., water crisis could be prevented in other cities, using the discovery of a Northeastern engineer who says transforming the texture of pipe systems can repel dangerous microorganisms.
“If you have a bacteria that sticks to the wall of a pipe, it’ll basically grow uncontrolled,” said Tom Webster, department chairman of chemical engineering at Northeastern University’s College of Engineering.
“The goal is to keep water as pure as possible.”
