Respected sir,

We are from Visakhapatnam, and we do all kinds of water treatment works. We design borewell water treatment for utility purposes only and we want to establish a filtration system at a low budget. What treatment method can be used to remove chlorides, CL is 2240 ppm, hardness at 2380 ppm and Nitrate as NO3 at 72.6 ppm from the water? This is bore water and treatment is needed for utility purpose only.

Per day requirement is 75000 liters and filtration system running hours is 4 hours.

Could you kindly recommend a good design for us?

Thank you.

One of the worst affected districts in Andhra Pradesh, Anantapur is seeing its farmers leave their villages for cities due to water scarcity.

Scanty rainfall, depleting groundwater levels, barren farmlands and mass migration of farmers to cities for better livelihood--this is the reality of most of rural India today. Many parts of India are witnessing this growing trend of farmers leaving their lands in search of jobs in cities. Andhra Pradesh is no different with several districts of the state seeing a rising rate in outmigration of farmers.

Tribal women in a remote village in Andhra Pradesh have found a solution to their poverty in inland fisheries. They are also winning accolades for their efforts.

There is a reason why water bodies are considered a resource. From the water they provide to the many living organisms they support, water bodies are constantly supplying us with things essential to our survival. They also provide livelihood as this story of some enterprising tribal women in a remote village in Andhra Pradesh exemplifies. Until a few years ago, they were collecting and selling firewood from the forest for Rs 40 a day.
