Need practical ideas to re-use the rejected water from packaged drinking water plants
There are over 6000 packaged drinking water plants in India at present. These plants use the RO technology. The RO membrane filters out excess salts and sends them through reject water daily, depending upon the capacity of the plant.  I need practical ideas beyond sanitation use of the reject water.

How to check whether packaged drinking water is genuine and potable?
 Usually, when we travel , and passing by, we hurriedly buy a bottle for drinking water, and do not bother whether it is a bottle supplied by an authorised Packaged Drinking Plant supplier. But we can definately feel the difference while tasting the same water at different locations. So, how can we ensure that the packaged water bottle that we buy is a genuine one ?

Is herbal water legal ?
Hello, Some time ago, one gentleman asked me about herbal water. I enquired in my circles and found that as per BIS , it is not legal. I also did some reading on Google and landed on this site IHWF. Tried to contact them, poor luck. I want IWP's sincere & open views on this or views of some experts will be very useful. Thanks in advance

Why are we now having erratic and unpredictable rains?
Hello, Since last 15 years, I have observed a trend in the rains. The rains when they arrive they are massive, then a huge gap, again they arrive and are massive. It was not so in earlier days during my childhood, upto 1980-85 or so. Is it because the whole society is shifting towards more urbanisation? What is the reason ?
