The aim of the ECO-India project is to design and develop innovative cost-effective solutions for community- based water- and wastewater- treatment systems. These systems will be deployed at pilot sites in arsenic-affected water-stressed regions in India. The two consortia, Indian (DST) and European (FP7), will establish pilot schemes for:

  • Catchment area and reservoir management
  • Surface water supply schemes
  • Arsenic removal (including monitoring using UFZ’s field-tested Arsolux arsenic sensor)
  • Disinfection treatment for potable water based on Trustwater’s CE-certified mixed-oxidant generation systems.
  • Online monitoring of water quality
  • Water distribution network, together with online/offline water quality monitoring programmes
  • Sewerage and wastewater treatment.
