The slum water programme business plan: A sustainable water solution for marginalized slum communities - A document by ROWSThis document by Reach Out Water Solutions (ROWS) highlights the daily reality of people living in the slums of Mumbai and the inadequate water supply available to the 10 million slum residents to meet their daily requirements.

It presents a business plan, namely the Slum Water Programme (SWP) that proposes a comprehensive, community driven, decentralised programme to meet the water needs of the slum community.

The programme proposes to do this in three ways:

  • Firstly, by dealing with the problem of inadequate supply of water to the slum residents by the municipality, through increasing the availability of water
  • By providing improved quality of water through utilising water purification techniques
  • Improving access to water by making it available at the doorstep

ROWS plans to first establish a single SWP for 1,500 daily community users and 200 SWP pay-per-use customers in the pilot phase and then gradually expand the programme to establish 1,500 SWP locations, providing water to 2.2 million slum residents of Mumbai.
