Water Quality in Urban SlumsA Study funded by WaterAid in Delhi, India
This is a report on the findings of a study done by FORCE as a part of WaterAid India supported Swatchch Dilli Swasth Dilli project
FORCE analysed water samples taken from drinking water sources of 20 slums in Delhi, India.
The results were shocking. They showed presence of pathogens in the water taken from borewells, fluoride creeping in to the groundwater and what was worse – 60,000 people unaware of the quality of the water they were drinking.
This study became the start of our Safe Drinking Water Program.
