Indians don’t have the luxury of tap water that’s rigorously tested and treated. They need to filter or boil their water because the stuff their government sends them is often dangerous.

Kyzyl wants to discuss Source of microplastic pollution could be in the next room 5 years ago
Scientists are reporting that household washing machines seem to be a major source of so-called “microplastic” pollution—bits of polyester and acrylic smaller than the head of a pin—that they now have detected on ocean shorelines worldwide. Their report describing this potentially harmful material appears in the American Chemical Society journal Environmental Science & Technology.

CII, Israel ink pact for water management technology
The CII- Sohrabji Godrej Green Business Centre (CII - Godrej GBC), a division of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), has entered into a strategic partnership with the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labour of the State of Israel (MOITAL), here.
As part of the agreement, water management solutions and technologies would be exchanged between the two countries under the Israel NewTech programme, which provides water management solutions.
As Israel has been dealing with water-related issues for the last 40 years, it has the best expertise in water management and provides its technology to other countries, said Oded Distel, director of MOITAL.
