Water treatment produces irrigation water for local parks: a case study from Vasant Vihar, New DelhiPosted on 11 May, 2009 03:12 PM
At Delhi, there are dirty waste water rivulets, “nallahs” crisscrossing all localities and adding to the pollutant load of the river Yamuna. The situation is alarming with today’s count of nallahs standing at more than 22 Nos. These urban drains are nature’s creation and are meant to convey storm / rain water from upstream areas to downstream, finally leading to the river.
The calendar features images from the VigyanVijay's Eco-water literacy project titledÂ "Youth for Water". VigyanVijay's Eco-water literacy project titled "Youth for Water", in the progress of awareness to youth of different age groups, has evolved a network of institutions with water elements in the NCR- Delhi region. Among these sites, 12 of them have been selected for conducting Eco-water Trails (walks). At each of these selected sites, various key elements were identified for conducting "Water Trials"to the lead volunteers and teachers with keen interest for taking the messages to youth and the communities they are associated with.
IIT Delhi and Vigyan Vijay Foundation have been implementing a pilot project on Waterless Urinals. The project is supported by Stockholm Environmental Institute and UNICEF. These posters below have been developed as part of that project. The project aims to develop appropriate solutions for scaling-up Waterless Urinals at public places, institutions and homes. One of the core objectives of the project is to advocate waterless urinals as an integral component of toilets especially at homes whereby water and energy can be conserved and the environment is protected. We hope these posters will be of immense value to general public and practitioners looking for undertaking waterless urinals.
