2700 CRORE LITERS  

Citizen-led Water Collective Drives Action to Save 2700 Crore Litres in 2022

The World of Water (WoW) Action Forum persuades water users of the City—you and I—to be part of the solution. With simple choices to

  • Reusing water 

  • Recalibrating measuring systems.

  • Reaping the harvest of rains that can be used for 2-3 months a year 

  • Recharging water into the ground 

  • Reducing usage with simple mechanisms.

​ 

Working with WoW will help you pick the right solutions, at much better costs.

 

Five cities form WOW  : 

Bengaluru, Chennai, Trichy ,Hyderabad and Kathmandu have joined the WOW partner city mission.

 

Each city is led by a Mission Director committed to galvanizing citizens to act and adopt water solutions in their apartment, Offices, hotels and hospitals.

The ICCW (International Centre for Clean Water, The GWW (Global Water works), The Indian Plumbing Association (IPA), The IGBC (Indian Green Building Council), The PJMT (Prem Jain Memorial Trust) are partner institutions across cities. Global Water Works is hoping to find similar WOW partner cities in North, Central and South America..

 

Each city is driven by Mission Director who drives the city target for bulk water saving with sub-targets created, owned and driven by Action Groups for various bulk water-user segments.

WOW Bengaluru Offers Lessons & Insights 

Bengaluru adopted WOW in 2021. It’s a city rated to be among the first 5 cities as an 'extreme risk city' in the world. The city has a daily demand of 200 crore litres with only half of it supplied by the water utility. And the city is expected to double demand to 400 crore litres a day by 2030 — with no new source of water supply in sight.

 
Chennai has a situation as grim. See https://www.maplecroft.com/insights/analysis/chennai-is-the-tip-of-the-iceberg-for-indias-water-stressed-cities/). 


Rainfall patterns have changed dramatically over the past few decades. More rains in fewer days. Harvesting water will ease demand while reducing flooding risks. 
Every city needs citizen action. Relying on the water Boards cannot solve your water crisis at home or workplace. Global WOW helps you shape your solutions with localised options to grow your own water.

So, what can you and I do about it?

THE HARD FACTS: WHY SHOULD YOU DO IT

barchart.jpg
piechart.jpg

In every city more than 50 to 80 percent of the total waste water discharge is from residential sector. Industrial and commercial buildings claim only the rest. 


Water supply today is for a maximum 5-6 hours in an entire week. Each home has built large tanks to store. If you worked on a simple WOW formula of harvesting and of creative application of water in different forms you’ll beat the crisis.

You could join the mission and act. Other WOW leaders will help.
