Safe Water Network and Honeywell Partner to Provide Access to Sustainable Safe Drinking Water in Telangana

Safe Water Network and Honeywell India today announced their partnership to provide convenient access to affordable and reliable safe drinking water in two districts of Telangana. Funded by a Honeywell India grant, Safe Water Network is building 25 iJal Safe Water Stations in Karimnagar and Adilabad districts from 2015 through 2017. These will serve approximately 60,000 people in an area affected by groundwater contamination from flouride and water shortage. Ten iJal stations are already operational in Karimnagar district. This initiative addresses a critical need in India where 100 million people live in areas of poor water quality. 

The event was covered by the press in local news outlets and online. Read more from India Today, India CSR, Business Standard, and The Hindu Business Line
