WATER THE ELIXIR OF LIFE

About 80% of diseases such as Cholera, Typhoid, Diarrhea, Jaundice etc. are caused by unsafe water. There is considerable leakage of water through unmetered connections, uncontrolled stand posts, leaking fittings and ferrules etc. In case, this is controlled, it would not only result in better efficiency of service being rendered but will also improve viability. Booster pumps installed directly on the Water Supply lines are the main cause of reduced water pressure and often cause contamination. Water is expensive to produce and to dispose off.

UNDERGROUND SEWERAGE KEY TO HEALTHY LIVING

Sewers are meant only for liquid waste and not for dumping rubbish, plastic bags, cow dung etc.

Choked sewers are worse than no sewers at all.

Cleaned sewers ensure freedom from blockages, back-flow and stagnation in low-lying areas.

Service pipes for house connection passing through open drains cause serious contamination of drinking water.

Discharging of untreated sewage into natural stream or using for broad irrigation without dilution for crops to be eaten raw is a health hazard.
