Smart solutions to beat water shortage
Following the recent floods, a group of experts visited areas like MRC Nagar, Ranga Road, CIT colony, Ekkaduthangal, Kotturpuram to check the quality of groundwater.
“We also had campaigns in IT parks and colleges where people could know the quality of water. We checked the water and shared the results and remedial measures with residents,” says Varun Sridharan, Director of Greenvironment, an environmental engineering company incubated at IIT-Madras.
Incorporated in August 2012, Greenvironment focuses on providing innovative and cost effective technologies for efficient water and wastewater management solutions. We now face water scarcity since balancing supply and demand has become a challenge.
“Every building requires fresh water for all needs. Designing, executing and operating treatment plants requires good understanding of water quality and treatment processes. We solve the problem using technology to effectively monitor and manage this resource. Thus it’s called Smart Water Management,” says Varun, who was nominated by the Ministry of Youth Affairs to lead the entrepreneurial community of India to the first BRICS Youth Summit in Russia in 2015.
Talking about the water situation in the city, he says, “As we had few days of rain but very high in volume, we are likely to face water shortage this summer.”
