Youths on a testing mission to ensure safe drinking water 1.2.2017 DNA: Opinion
Nitesh always went by the maxim that if it looked clean, it probably was clean. It was only after he became a part of the project to test water quality that he became aware of exactly how dirty the water that he was routinely drinking was. The 18-year-old is part of the youth user group, first set up in 2012 by Action India in Sunder Nagri, with support from WaterAid India.

Solar-powered system to provide safe drinking water in India 23.1.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Scientists are developing a low-cost, solar-powered water purification system that may help over 77 million people in remote parts of India get access to safe drinking water. According to researchers at the University of Edinburgh in the UK, there is no systematic treatment of sewage in rural India. The government has focused on purifying contaminated water in rivers and streams, but the situation could be greatly improved by tackling the problem at source, researchers said. To make contaminated water safe to drink, visible traces of waste are first removed using filters. Then any remaining organic matter and bacteria is broken down.
