PIL filed against Kalpakkam nuclear power plant

Hi,

I want to know if water with TDS 1000 ppm be desalinated and used for drinking? If so what is the smallest size unit that needs to be setup (1000 lt per hour or less than that). What would be the capital cost, operating cost and total cost of potable water/m3.

I would also like to know if there are solar desalination units available which can produce 1000ltr/hr. Please advice.

With no single example across the world to cite for successful model of water privatisation, the irony remains that it continues to grow in developing countries. India is witnessing a range of private sector participation in various water schemes, these come under different forms and shapes but the motive remains the same- make profit out water. Almost all privatisation endeavor in water sector has met with obstacles, Khandwa is no exception! The teething problem of the project doesn't appear to settle as the rising discontent and resistance among people continues to grow.

The bad track record of the public sector to provide water has increasingly led to private sector participation in water supply system. The proponents of privatization state that private sector would increase efficiency, bring adequate finance and help build the infrastructure that is required to run the utilities properly in an effective manner. The anti privatisation lobby argue that the price of water will increase, will undermine the socio-cultural aspects of water and also there will be water quality issues.
