Packaged Drinking Water
The water used for potable purposes should be free from undesirable impurities. The water available from untreated sources such as Well, Boreholes and spring is generally not hygienic and safe for drinking. Thus it is desirable and necessary to purify the water and supply under hygienic conditions for human drinking purpose. Unfortunately sufficient safe potable water is not available everywhere in the country, either harmful chemical substance are found in the layers of earth which enter into water or it may be contaminated due to pathogenic micro-organisms. If such water is consumed, the body suffers from water borne diseases. Due to this, it has become imperative to process and bottle safe potable water for the mankind in prevailing conditions. The product is widely accepted in offices, restaurants, railway stations, airport, bus stands, and hospitals and to some extent even in rich house-holds. So there is good scope for establishing the units for processing and bottling plain and mineralized drinking water in different parts of the country.
