A secure water supply is? the foundation of a strong economy, but it is grossly undervalued globally.
In India, it is estimated that waterborne infections cost the country almost 600 crores each year. This is particularly true in drought- and flood-prone areas, which have affected a third of the country in recent years.In India, less than half of the population has access to properly managed drinking water. Chemical contamination of water is found in 1.96 million homes, primarily due to fluoride and arsenic.
According to the World Health Organization, excess fluoride in India could be impacting tens of millions of people across 19 states, while excess arsenic could be affecting up to 15 million people in West Bengal.
Furthermore, serious water scarcity affects two-thirds of India's 718 districts, and the existing lack of planning for water safety and security is a big worry. One of the issues is the rapid depletion of groundwater in India, which is known as the world's greatest user of this resource due to the widespread use of drilling in recent decades.
Women and children are generally responsible for gathering water when households do not have access to a safe and reliable water supply, particularly one that is close to their home. When youngsters in India are compelled to spend hours collecting water, their attendance at school drops. Drought-affected states have seen a 22 percent spike in school dropout rates. Nearly 54% of rural women, including some adolescent girls, spend an estimated 35 minutes every day collecting water, which equates to a loss of 27 days' pay over a year.
According to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, all children have the right to clean water and basic sanitation. The ultimate goal of UNICEF's water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) mission is to ensure that all children have access to this right, with no child being left behind.
While sanitation remains a top issue, the demand for a continuous supply of piped water is increasing. UNICEF has been the Government of India's "development partner of choice" and has been instrumental in the restructuring and execution of the country's flagship National Rural Drinking Water Programme. UNICEF focuses on community-managed drinking water, as well as planning for water safety and security. UNICEF focuses on improving water quality monitoring systems and boosting the operation and maintenance of water delivery infrastructures at the institutional level.
SAFE DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES. I.e. RO IS MUST FOR EVERY COMMUNITY
Reverse Osmosis is a popular method of purifying water in every apartment today. This system, which purifies water by removing salts and ions, has grown in popularity in many apartment complexes. There are various water purifying machines that use reverse osmosis technology to purify drinking water in both single-family homes and community centres.
STEPS THROUGH WHICH WATER ARE PURIFIED IN COMMUNITY CENTERS:
1. It has a sediment filter that captures particles such as rust and calcium carbonate.
2. It also has a second sediment filter with smaller pores. This can also be exceeded depending on the population size.
3. It is equipped with an activated carbon filter that traps organic chemicals and chlorine. The TFC reverse osmosis membranes will eventually be attacked and degraded as a result of this.
4. A second carbon filter is available as an option to capture chemicals that are not removed by the RO membrane.
5. There is an optional ultra-violet lamp for sterilising any microbes that may evade the machine's reverse osmosis membrane.
RO machines are manufactured in a variety of styles, and the basic types of reverse osmosis systems are determined by the number and type of membranes or filters used in a RO system for communities. As a result, Netsol Water Solution offers all types of RO machines used in apartment/ communities.
In a large community, our RO machine can be easily installed or connected to the water supply point. The Reverse Osmosis technique has one of the highest contaminant rejection rates of any water filtering system which ensures that not a single person should leave behind by having access to pure and clean water. For those who do not have access to clean drinking water, we at Netsol are ready to help. We also are eager to take initiatives with our Government to reach out to people who don’t have access to clean drinking water.
We all together can build our future!
