Along with Waterlife India and the village panchayat, Maruti Suzuki India has inaugurated a Water ATM plant in Bas Hariya village in Manesar. With this fourth community drinking water plant in Manesar, the company will be generating and supplying a total of 96,000 litres of pure drinking water benefiting over 7000 households. Earlier, the company had set up three Water ATMs in Kasan, Dhana, and Bas Khusla villages of Manesar.
The Water ATM has a capacity to generate 1000 litres of pure water per hour. The 10 stage UV filtration technology by Waterlife ensures the water meets WHO and ISO 10500 standards and retains essential minerals. The technology also helps in minimal water rejection - only 1/4'h of the conventional water purification facilities - making most of the Input water consumable. This minimal wastage of water enables lower costs per litre. Pure water costs 35 paisa per litre and chilled water will cost just Rs 2 per litre.
