Water Management

The water and sewage management in cities will determine the growth of cities in India. Most cities are today water stressed, unable to cope with the water demand of the growing urban populations and to treat the resulting wastewater. Cities are continually coping with different forms of crises – water scarcity in summer, floods in monsoons and water pollution throughout the year.
