Following regular hearings on the Ganga cleaning matter, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Tuesday directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)  to carry out a thorough probe into dubious execution of projects by Jal Nigam in Garhmukteshwar in Uttar Pradesh. The directions came after a five-member bench of the NGT, chaired by Swatanter Kumar, cross-examined senior officials of the UP Jal Nigam.

They (projects) are being executed without rational basis," said ...

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. The team, including researchers from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research in Pune, is adapting its existing technologies to power this second stage in the decontamination process. The system uses sunlight to generate high-energy particles inside solar-powered materials, which activate oxygen in the water to incinerate harmful pollutants and bacteria. The ...
