Safe drinking water is grave problem across country: Sai

New Delhi, Nov 10 (UNI) Minister of State for Steel Vishnu Deo Sai on Friday said safe drinking water has been a grave problem for India, across the country where lack of usable water has resulted in decade old sanitation and health problems.
While inaugurating a cross-functional seminar among Ministries of Water & Sanitation, Housing & Urban Affairs and Steel, to deliberate over sustainable solutions in plugging nearly 40 per cent water leakages in water distribution systems, he said potable water gets contaminated due to corrosive water pipelines. Also, leakages through plastic water pipes lead to water loss in transmission. Conversely, Stainless Steel water pipes are corrosion free, strong, durable and recyclable.
As per the World Bank estimates, the total cost of non-revenue water worldwide is 14 billion dollarannually.
