Toxic heavy metals from electronic waste piles in Delhi contaminate groundwater and soil.

Widespread use of digital devices--mobile phones, tablets, computers, smart watches and more--has made electronic waste a new environmental problem. Discarded gadgets result in massive piles of e-waste, which is contaminating soil and groundwater in the national capital, a new study has pointed out. 

The results of the study, published in the journal Current Science, have indicated that soil and water contamination is likely to find its way into the human body resulting in health hazards.

Hi,

I am from New Delhi and live in one of it's eastern suburbs. We use corporation (Delhi Jal Board) water for drinking and sanitary applications, as everyone else here. 

Lately I have become conscious of the excessive quantities of water we use and sometimes waste. We have three floors in the house occupied by three families. While we do have a utility water meter at the common inlet, I would like to monitor water consumption at individual levels, and if possible remotely.
