Abstract

A safe and adequate supply of water is a basic need of human life. A safe and adequate system for supplying and distributing water and for removing and treating soiled water is a basic need of the human settlement, an essential part of the infrastructure which supports it and enables it to function. In many settlements the public water supply and sewerage system is grossly inadequate even for present requirements, while the demand for water is constantly increasing with the growth of population and rises in the standard of living.
