Constructed/artificial wetlands
Wetlands act as bio-filters, with aquatic plants removing pollutants, sediments and nutrients from water. Learn more...

Storm Water attenuation
Storm water collects debris, heavy metals and other pollutants from impervious surfaces, and causes pollution of our water bodies, soil erosion and sedimentation. Learn more...

Wate Water Treatment/Purification
Water polluted in manufacturing or other commercial activities should be treated at source, and re-used/recycled, and discharged in an environment-friendly state. Learn more...

Water Footprint Network

 

The Water Footprint Network is a dynamic, international learning community. We are a platform for connecting diverse communities interested in sustainability, equitability and efficiency of water use.  The Global Water Footprint Standard – developed through a joint effort of the Water Footprint Network, its partners, and scientists of the University of Twente in the Netherlands – has garnered international support from major companies, policymakers, NGOs and scientists as an important step toward solving the world’s ever increasing water problems.
