    Using data from the year 2000, the average amount spent on water treatment per person is $105. For a US city of 300,000, this would translate to $31,500,000 spent per year on water treatment.

    Water purification for public drinking includes removing a variety contaminants, including chemical, material, and biological pollutants. Note that this is in 2000 dollars; by inflation alone, a 2000 $1 is worth $1.28 in 2010 dollars. In the above example, that would make it $40,320,000 today (not counting other price increases).
