Clean water is a precious resource that touches every aspect of our lives and for us to lead healthy lives. Water in its pristine form is available only in a few places in the world, is increasingly becoming scarce and most river basins are water stressed.
Water needs to be managed from its collection at source, to drinking water, wastewater, to its reuse and return to the environment. We need total water solutions to address questions like why is there such a high failure of water treatment and why is the quantity of waste water increasing. We need to provide decision support tools to urban local bodies to handle emergency water crisis situations in summer, during floods and droughts.
