Project Description

Water quality globally, and in India, is deteriorating due to human activities and anthropogenic contamination of harmful chemicals, for example, Arsenic, affecting over 900 million people in India. India’s total water and sanitation sectors are worth $420 million, with an annual growth rate of 18% (World Bank). Almost 80% of water supply flows back into the ecosystem as wastewater. Currently, India has the capacity to treat approximately 37% of its wastewater, or 22,963 million litres per day (MLD), against a daily waste generation of approximately 61,754 MLD from more than 900 sewage treatment plants. Consequently, there is an urgent need that calls for a thorough knowledge of the status and trends in waste water and groundwater quality, for collecting quality assured monitoring data that will be helpful in framing the required decision making policies.
