Amritdhara – a mobile RO plant to quench Chennai’s thirst

As Chennai is flooded, there is a scarcity of drinking water. In such a situation, the mobile RO unit is expected to be a boon.

  1. A 20,000 litre capacity truck-mounted mobile unit from Bengaluru.
  2. It will take flood water from streets and convert it into potable water, using Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology.
  3. A group of volunteers have created a website, bangaloreforchennai.com – where help has been pouring in from various quarters.
  4. Some Bangaloreans have turned virtual volunteers on social media platforms.
