After watching the success of Water ATM nationwide, we are planning to set up Water ATMs across the various parts of the country. Our idea will be an action to curb the water crisis in various remote areas which have low reservoir storages and groundwater levels.
These ATMs are solar-powered and a decentralized drinking water plant based on reverse osmosis has been set up in this area to provide pure water through these ATMs. As we are already the manufacturers of Reverse Osmosis Plants, it would be cost effective to build up the Water ATMs.
Objective: To reduce the water scarcity problem in various parts of the country
With the increase in the number of population, the demand for water is also increasing. Many cities faces a severe water crisis almost throughout the year, especially during the summer months. To reduce this shortage of water problem, we coined the idea of setting up of water ATMs in various rural as well as urban areas.
How water ATMs work?
We have water-ATMs which run on electric power as well as solar energy that is sustainable and totally inexhaustible. A decentralised water plant is set up as the main plant that purifies the water through reverse osmosis and a tanker filled with 500 litre of pure water is installed on the top of each ATM.
People draw water from these ATMs using smart cards. These smart cards can be recharged at the main treatment plant. Whenever the level of water in any of the tanker reduces to 200 litres, a message is sent to the main server automatically and these tanks are again refilled. At one point of time, a customer can withdraw up to 20 litres of water.
These ATMs will be set up in resettlement colonies where the people face the maximum shortage of water. Also, the concept of buying water will also ensure that people use water judiciously and do no waste it. The water ATMs will provide pure drinking water. The residents in such colonies at present do not get piped water supply and the groundwater is unfit for consumption.
