जल ही जीवन है। अफसोस कि आज इस कहावत का मतलब ही भुला दिया गया है। जल हमारी रगों में खून बनकर दौड़ता है पर अब इस खून में मिलावट आ गई है। वजह- दूषित जल। देश के कईं हिस्सों में लोगों को साफ पानी मुहैया नहीं है। समस्या ताजे पानी की उपलब्धि की नहीं बल्कि गुणवत्ता वाले पानी की उपलब्धि न होना है।
दूषित जल पीने से हर साल कितने ही लोग मर रहे हैं, ऐसे में इन चुनौतियों का सामना करने के लिए जरूरी है पानी की मॉनिटरिंग, प्रबंधन और निगरानी।
प्रशिक्षण का उद्देश्य-
संस्थाओं को जल गुणवत्ता मॉनिटरिंग के लिए तकनीकी प्रशिक्षण देना।

Drinking Water Quality Monitoring and Management

06-08 August 2009

TARAgram, Appropriate Technology Centre, Orchha, Madhya Pradesh
Introduction
Water, the elixir of life! Alas, today this phrase remains a misnomer. The entire ecosystem existence is based on water .It runs like blood in our body, but nowadays this blood is impure and short in supply. This is due to the fact of contamination of water with pollutants and consistent negligence on the part of governments to look after water supply with increase in population. People in several parts of India face an immense challenge to meet the basic needs of water. The crisis is not due to the lack of fresh water as such, but the availability of adequate quality water at the right place and time to meet basic needs.
Every year more than five million human beings die from illness linked to unsafe drinking water and sanitation. Improved access to safe water supply and appropriate sanitation can also improve the economic status, mainly through saving large amounts of people’s time and energy. It is a matter of concern that despite the progress made with water supply, the level of water-related sickness continues to be high. 70-80 % of illnesses are related to water contamination and poor sanitation. Main diseases associated with sanitation-diarrhea, ascariasis, dracunculiasis, hookworm, schistosomiasis, trachoma, typhoid, paratyphoid, bacillary dysentery, cholera, poliomyelitis, etc are on an increase. These diseases consume a lot of time and money for medical attention and medicines. In India, the economic burden due to morbidity and mortality from these diseases is staggering. The resources saved by improved water supply and sanitation can be used in many economically productive or educational activities.
During the last few decades the national policies have shown increasing emphasis on both rural and urban water supply and sanitation. In terms of physical progress, the achievements have been remarkable. In rural context, however unfortunately these efforts have not been seen to be converted into health benefits and water borne diseases continue to be the dominant cause of morbidity and mortality in many pars of the country. The reasons are fairly very obvious, though water is being supplied; its potability is not being ensured. The lack of Water Quality Surveillance in these areas is acutely brought into focus during the episodes of waterborne epidemics.
In realm of this domain to overcome these challenges, the need of the hour is monitoring of water quality, surveillance and management. By putting these things into practice the dream of supplying pure drinking water to each individual could be achieved.
