Ahmedabad: Wastewater irrigation also leads to diarrhea! 27.6.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
A study has found that a large portion of Ahmedabad's farming population relies on water unsuitable for irrigation, which has had significant adverse health effects on them. The year long study covered 187 households from four communities that used surface water, groundwater and wastewater for irrigation. Apart from getting reports about the health of the households, the study also analysed the water samples for E.coli and found that in all the three water sources, the average E-coli numbers per 100 ml exceeded the international irrigation water standard.
