Waste water treatment


The growing population of India’s cities are placing a huge strain on the country’s resources, especially water. Efficient management of resources are prime to counter this problem, nevertheless it seems to be a perpetual problem. The World Bank estimates that 21% of communicable diseases in India are related to unsafe water, most of which are contaminated either by sewage or agricultural run-off. Water contamination due to agricultural run-off is tackled by a strict zero chemical policy for farming. Water contamination due to sewage is a major concern which results in various water born diseases like diarrhea. According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, in India diarrhea alone causes more than 1,600 deaths daily. So safe disposal and treatment of waste water is the crucial need of the day.
