India’s first Knowledge Center on Drinking Water

Water the mother of life

Today,the amount of water on earth remains exactly the same as it was billions of years ago- no more, no less.

The water molecule which we have been using today might have been drunk by some dinosaur.

Water the mother of life

Forms of water
FORMS OF WATER and seas.

WATER & HUMAN and seas.

6.6 and seas.



  • 72% of our body is water

  • On average a person drinks about 60,000 liters. of water during his lifetime.

  • Metro water is supplying water to the consumers through lorries of 9000 liters capacity

Why do we need water
Why do we need Water? and seas.

  • W orks to keep muscles and skin toned.

  • A ids in weight loss.

  • T ransports oxygen & nutrients to cells.

  • E liminates toxins & waste from the body.

  • R egulates body temperature.

Water the mother of life

  • In human body two-third is water. and seas.

  • Water is essential nutrient that is involved in every function of the body.

  • 50,000 billion! That is the number of cells which contain two thirds of the water in our bodies!

  • Just like the air, water is essential to life.

Dehydration and seas.

  • Dehydration means the body does not have enough fluids to function at an optimal level.

  • Dehydration can be caused by fluid loss (through vomiting, diarrhea or excessive urination), inadequate intake, or a combination of both.

  • Decrease in skin turgor is indicated when the skin (on the back of the hand for an adult or on the abdomen for a child) is pulled up for a few seconds and does not return to its original state.

Dehydration types
Dehydration Types and seas.

  • Dehydration is classified as mild, moderate, or severe based on the percentage of body weight lost during the acute illness.

Dehydration prevention
Dehydration Prevention and seas.

  • Always encourage fluids during an illness, and remember that fluid needs are increased with fever, vomiting, and diarrhea.

  • The easiest signs to monitor are…

    • urine output

    • saliva in the mouth

    • and tears while crying

    • Avoid using water as the primary replacement fluid, especially in infants.

Where do we get our Drinking Water? and seas.

Lakes and


Rivers and



Water Wells

What is groundwater

  • Groundwater is water that comes from the ground.

  • Amazingly, many people use groundwater but don't even know it.

Where does groundwater comes from
Where does groundwater comes from? and seas.

  • Groundwater comes mainly from rain, that soaks into the ground.

  • The water moves down into the ground because of gravity, it reaches a depth where the ground is filled, or saturated, with water.

  • The area that is filled with water is called the saturated zone and the top of this zone is called the water table.

Surface water

  • The water in lakes, rivers, or oceans is called surface water...it's on the surface.

  • Water in a lake can soak down into the ground and become groundwater.

Bore well
BORE WELL and seas.

  • Groundwater is stored in the ground in materials like gravel or sand.

  • It's kind of like the earth is a big sponge holding all that water. Water can also move through rock formations like sandstone or through cracks in rocks.

  • An area that holds a lot of water, which can be pumped up is called an aquifer.

Water contamination

  • It can become polluted from

    • Industrial waste water

    • Domestic waste water

    • leaky underground tanks that store gasoline, leaky landfills

    • when people apply fertilizer or pesticides on their fields or lawns.

  • When pollutants leak, spill, or are carelessly dumped on the ground they can move through the soil.

BACTERIA and seas.

  • The most abundant organisms on Earth, bacterialive almost everywhere.

  • They live in the soil and water, in plants and animals.

  • They take the form of spheres, rods or spirals, bacteria consist of a single cell.

VIRUS and seas.

  • Viruses can appear as spirals, 20-sided figures or even more complicated forms.

  • They consist mainly of genetic material--DNA or RNA.

  • They are not cells, however, and cannot carry out life functions on their own.

  • Living inside the cells of other species, viruses use the host cells to grow and produce new viral particles.

  • As they take over genetic material to reproduce themselves, the host cells often die.

Virus multiplication

  • All viruses follow the same basic steps in what is known as the lytic cycle (see figure):

  • A virus particle attaches to a host cell.

  • The particle releases its genetic instructions into the host cell.

  • The injected genetic material recruits the host cell's enzymes.

  • The enzymes make parts for more new virus particles.

  • The new particles assemble the parts into new viruses.

  • The new particles break free from the host cell.

PROTOZOA and seas.

  • Protozoa consist of a single cell that includes a nucleus.

  • They can be parasitic, needing to live within another organism, or free-living in moist habitats.

  • The similarity of inner structures of protozoan and human cells makes it difficult to treat infections caused by protozoa.

  • Protozoan infections include amoebic dysentery, giardiasis, etc,..

How are they spread
How are they Spread? treating drinking and wastewater

  • A person may be infected by drinking contaminated water, or by direct or hand-to-mouth transfer of the bacteria from feces or contaminated surfaces.

VIRAL DISEASES treating drinking and wastewater

What are the symptoms
What are the Symptoms? treating drinking and wastewater

  • Human symptoms for water-borne illnesses range from fever and malaise to the better known gastro intestinal symptoms such as diarrhea and stomach aches.

  • Most water-borne illnesses cause:

    • Abdominal discomfort

    • Fever

    • Vomiting

    • Diarrhea

    • Symptoms are more severe for people with weakened immune systems and can lead to death.

How to prevent
How to Prevent? treating drinking and wastewater

  • Always wash your hands before handling food.

  • Wash fruits and vegetables with clean water.

  • Avoid unpastuerized milk and dairy products.

  • Don’t swallow water from lakes, rivers or pools.

  • Water swallowed while swimming may contain harmful bacteria.

  • Clean surfaces where diapers are changed after every use.

  • Foods and drinks, in particular raw fruits and vegetables maybe contaminated if not washed properly with pure water.

BOILING… treating drinking and wastewater

CHLORINATION treating drinking and wastewater

  • Chlorination is the process of treating water with Chlorine.

  • Needs a Contact Time of 45 Minutes.

  • Danger of over dosing.

  • Makes water more corrosive properties .

  • Taste and smell in the water.

    Advantage :

  • Cheap method of purification.

  • Used for public water supply.

CHLORINATION treating drinking and wastewater

  • Some viruses are resistant to chlorine.

  • Chlorination by-products like trihalomethane (THM), Chloramine are carcinogenic.

OZONISATION treating drinking and wastewater

  • Ozone is a form of oxygen with the molecular formula O3.

  • It forms when O2 or clean dry air is exposed to a powerful electric current.

  • In nature, it forms in the upper atmosphere when lightning passes through the air.

  • Ozone is unstable and changes to O2 shortly after its formation.

  • It is a powerful oxidant and one of the disinfectants available for water treatment.

Water the mother of life

OZONISATION treating drinking and wastewater

  • Expensive

  • Highly Unstable

  • Monitoring is difficult

  • Minimum Contact time required

  • Direct inhalation can lead to tissue damage

IODINATION treating drinking and wastewater

  • Iodination is the process of treating water with Iodine.

  • This kills the microbial load in the water.

  • Iodine is an essential element required for normal growth and development

  • Required for the synthesis of thyroid

  • Required 10 – 100 microgram/ day

  • To prevent Goiter – 1 microgram / Kg body weight /day

FRAGMENTED DNA treating drinking and wastewater


  • UV rays at 253.7 nm is highly bactericidal.

  • It penetrates the cell wall of the bacteria and attack the DNA directly.

  • Due to this the DNA will be fragmented and the bacteria leads to death.
