Water conservation efforts (2007) of Sterlite Industries India Ltd, Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu

The company has a dedicated water manager with full fledged water management team, thus bringing a centrality to its efforts.

This presentation deals with the water conservation efforts of Sterlite Industries India Ltd in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu. Apart from certain measures for reuse of process water, conversion to air cooling systems from water cooling ones and so on, what is interesting here is more the management structure for water conservation.

Flow meters have been fixed at all consumption points and are monitored on daily basis and a daily MIS on water consumption is circulated to all HODs, as are product-wise/by-product-wise monthly water consumption reports.

Water reports cover all details regarding water levels in dams, water reservoirs and area wise consumption. Area wise budgets are allocated for water consumption & variance / deviations discussed in daily production meetings. Area wise water consumption is reviewed by top management team in the monthly operation review meetings.

An interesting point here is that CII conducted an extensive two-phase water audit at Sterlite in April 2007, and the company has taken action on 70% of the recommendations. This could be an interesting documentation in itself, especially in view of its recent occurrence.
