Dear Sir,

I live near Kosasthalaiyar river in Thirukandalam, Tiruvallur district. A check dam was built in the river with low quality material and the dam could not stand even a single flood during December 2015. The check dam has not been fixed by the concerned departments and is still not rebuild. Please take the matter to the concerned authorities and help us develop our water level for agriculture.

Hello, I am doing research on pipes used in Indian Waste Water Treatment Industry and wanted to know which pipe materials are mostly used by the industry. It is my understanding that plastic pipes (PE, PPR, PVDF, ABS, CPVC and UPVC) are mostly preferred and galvanized iron pipes are not used. Is this understanding correct? Which of these plastics are mostly preferred? Are galvanized iron pipes still being used in some applications? Any response would be greatly appreciated.
