The 5 stage solar water purification system gives 1500 litres of drinking water in 24 hours in Puttapurhi, Anantapur district, Andhra Pradesh

The Sustainable Living Centre is located at Puttaparthi, Anantapur District, Andhra Pradesh.  The 5 stage solar water purification system gives 1500 litres of drinking water in 24 hours, if it is running continuously and if it has a constant source of water supply connected to it. The system is capable of filtering:  fluoride, arsenic, bacteria, pesticide and more and doesn’t require electricity to run, so it is a good solution for villages that do not have 24/7 power supply.

In a refreshing turn of events, this citizen-driven initiative has seen slow but steady results, showing that perseverance really can pay off.

 Residents of L&T South City and Brigade Millenium in JP Nagar, Bangalore formed a citizen initiative to save the neighbouring Puttenahalli Lake from becoming a dumping ground for construction debris and waste. A team from India Water Portal visited the lake in June 2011 to see the progress and challenges faced by such citizen initiatives.

A team from Arghyam recently visited an NGO called SEDS - Social Education and Development Society in the district of Anantpur, Andhra Pradesh.

Introduction

 SEDS approached Arghyam to seek advice on the quality of drinking water in the area. Anantpur is the second most drought-prone area in India, and a lot of work has been done to deal with the water supply situation by the Government of Andhra Pradesh as well as NGOs and charities such as SEDS and the Sai Baba Trust, to name a few. There seems to be an adequate supply of water in the district, but very little or no attention has been paid to the quality of water.
