Emerging trends towards zero maintenance sustainable water filters for rural areas
Author(s): Dr. Pritam Kumari
Water is required for sustaining life. Having access to clean and affordable drinking water is akin to a luxury in India while almost all of the people living in the developed region have access to improved drinking water, more than 30% of people living in the rural areas do not have access to improved drinking water. According to the World Bank, 85% of rural India’s drinking water requirements are satisfied by groundwater sources. These vital resources are depleting, and witnessing contamination that is threatening the lives of both the rural as well as the urban population. Filtration is a simple water treatment process capable of removing colloids, suspended solids, and pathogens from drinking water sources. Its main removal mechanism is size exclusion. A well-designed filtration system will be able to generate a clean stream of drinking water.
