The ever increasing water shortage has been a grave problem for India. Rising waste water due to rapid industrialization and growing population, along with diminishing freshwater sources like rivers, wells, and groundwater is concerning. The Water and Waste Water Industry in India offers many opportunities as technology application and private investment in Waste Water Management has become vital to contain the crisis and improve the availability of safe water.
