The Better India


Last week, a train carrying 2.5 million litres of water arrived in Chennai from Jolarpettai in Tamil Nadu’s Vellore district. This is how bad the water scarcity in Chennai is, with groundwater levels at a critical low.

If you’re a resident of Chennai or any other part of India suffering from an acute water crisis, there are many ways you can address it. Build rainwater harvesting systems, use a bucket instead of a shower to take a bath, fix your leaky taps.

In Chennai, meanwhile, a group of engineering graduates from the Madras Institute of Technology (MIT), have already built two types of nozzles for your taps through their startup, Earth Fokus. They claim that these devices can help cut down water wastage by a whopping 95 per cent.

Using atomization technology, these nozzles release water from your tap in the form of a mist-like spray. They can reduce water flow from 12 litres a minute to 600 millilitres a minute.
