Smart, Cost-effective Solutions for Water Treatment and Monitoring in Small Communities in India. Decision Support System Integration.

Water4India is a research project that studied different centralized and decentralized options for water treatment at community level in India, giving special consideration to resource availability, management, treatment solutions, water quality, socio-economic, and environmental factors.

FHNW edited an open-access compendium on ‘Drinking Water Systems and Technologies from Source to Consumer’ which will be published by the end of 2019. This concise and well-structured overview and assessment of relevant drinking water systems and technologies will target local decision makers, international experts, engineers and practitioners. It will be a supportive tool for communication of planning and designing processes of water supply systems at different scales and areas in low- and middle income countries.
