To meet the safe drinking water requirements at public places in Guwahati, potable water is proposed to be supplied through Automated Water Dispensing units (ATMs) at selected locations.
Locations identified after basic analysis of footfall, water & power connectivity: Kamakhya temple (2 No), Chandmari (2 No), Silpukhuri, paltan Bazar (3 No), Fancy Bazar (4 No), Pan Bazar (2 No), Nehru Park (1 No), DighaliPukhuri (1 No), SukreswarGhat (1 No), DC office (1 No), Guwahati High Court (1 No)
Expected Operation and Impact
The only sources of water for travellers and visitors across socio-economic backgrounds are either bottled water or local water sources. The water ATM project will ensure availability of safe drinking water at public spaces at a nominal cost
For 250 ml water dispense, the customer can use eco-friendly biodegradable cup available at ATM. For higher dispenses, customer has to use own container thus minimizing the high usage of plastic/ bottles for drinking water purposes
Water quality and unit operation sensors will ensure agile control over safe dispense
