    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
