Organized by: Devansh Jalota

THE STORY:

The “Community Water Purifier” project begun in June 2013, under the guidance of Dr Rakesh Kumar of the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute, Mumbai, aiming to provide improved water quality for residents of slum relocated colonies in Mumbai, India. Three different prototypes were developed and then two of these were installed in buildings at their overhead water tanks around December 2014. This project provided a very cost effective solution for getting clean water since it was a community purifier that substantially reduced the capital as well as operations and maintenance costs. The implementation of the water purifier aims to significantly improve hygiene and reduce water borne diseases in the community. In a partnership with local organizations and leaders, residents are educated on sustainable water practices within the community. The expansion of this project to slums and rural areas will yield better outcomes for all who are in need of a localized and inexpensive effective solution for cleaner water. The Purall prototype costs at 2015 rates are US$ 258.0 – 285.0 and annual maintenance costs are US$ 380.0 for 90 families, thus US$4.2 per family per year. The Ozonator prototype costs at 2015 rates are US$ 1714.0 – 2143.0 and annual maintenance costs are US$ 215.0 for 90 families, thus US$2.4 per family per year. Due to paucity of funds actual installation could happen in two of the 57 buildings in the project colony. Donations are requested for taking this project to more buildings as well as for customization of the prototypes for slums and rural settings.
