Clean Drinking Water Plants in Villages
We are pleased to inform you that APMGUSA has recently entered into a partnership with NAANDI Foundation of Hyderabad, A.P in implementing “Adopt a Village Program” with a goal of providing clean, safe drinking water to the people of Andhra Pradesh in identified villages. NAANDI shall assist APMGUSA in organizing community safe water systems (CSWS) to villages so that there is access to safe, potable drinking water for rural communities.
For a population range of 2500-7000, a water treatment unit capacity of 1000 lph shall be required. For such a unit current estimated cost in Rupees nine lakhs out of which APMGUSA donor contribution would be Rupees five lakhs or equivalent US dollars (one time contribution) and NAANDI Foundation Component would be Rupees four lakhs. If the village population is less than 2500, cost would be less than the above. Similarly if the village population is more than 7000, bigger (or multiple) unit shall be required and naturally the cost would be more than the above mentioned amount. Village panchayat should provide a leveled site for the plant and a clear source of water should be available for treatment at the proposed plant site. The service charges for purifying water would be 10 to 15 paise per liter or as is mutually agreed between NAANDI Foundation and Village panchayat. NAANDI shall operate and maintain units.
We hope that you will take advantage of this exciting opportunity and circulate this to your friends/relatives/collegemates. To sponsor the project thru APMGUSA Foundation, please visit our website: www.apmgusa.org
