Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES NATIONAL -

The Honey­well-Safe Wa­ter Net­work ini­tia­tive ad­dresses a crit­i­cal need in the re­gion that suf­fers ground­wa­ter con­tam­i­na­tion from high lev­els of flu­o­ride. Wa­ter and san­i­ta­tion-re­lated ill­nesses ac­count for 70-80 per cent of dis­eases in this area. Dur­ing the three-month dry sea­son be­gin­ning each March, wa­ter scarcity and drought are com­mon; many women walk more than an hour each day to find wa­ter that can still be con­sid­ered un­safe.

“Honey­well is com­mit­ted to cre­at­ing truly last­ing so­lu­tions for sus­tain­abil­ity chal­lenges fac­ing com­mu­ni­ties around the globe. That is why we are proud to part­ner with Safe Wa­ter Net­work,” said Anant Ma­hesh­wari, Pres­i­dent, Honey­well In­dia. Honey­well is deeply in­vested in Te­lan­gana, where it has a state-of-the-art, global tech­nol­ogy de­vel­op­ment cen­tre spread over a 10-acre cam­pus in Hy­der­abad. The Safe Wa­ter Net­work model has been suc­cess­ful be­cause its wa­ter sys­tems are owned, op­er­ated, and main­tained by lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties, and re­port less than 2 per cent down­time.
