Many thanks to members for sharing this information bout water standards.

http://cgwb.gov.in/Documents/WQ-standards.pdf

My point is this is such an important area. Recently I was in Meerut area and the water coming was muddy water and people didnt know what to do.

Why cant potable water standards be made mandatory and imposed upon municipalities. more

I really appreciate the standards of discussion here on the Potable Drinking Water 'supply system'. One is the Quality Standards of the Drinking Water (also the water used for cooking purposes), and the other issue is of the quality of Standards of the pipelines laid at the door steps of the consumers which are not at all maintained properly - their frequent flushing and cleaning, and also replacement necessitated by the wear and tear of the pipes over the years. Should the Departments in the Civic Bodies have to be reminded by the consumers' body or they have inbuilt system of inspection and reporting the repair and replacement required? more  
DEAR SHIVANI,it is said' water is life,' but our Government,local Municipality etc. are not bothered.Probably,they think that people will buy costly WATER PURIFIERS and make themselves safe to drink PURIFIED WATER.But can the poor afford a WATER PURIFIER?India is now under the clutches of BUSINESS HOUSES.And the GOVT.is helping their business to grow,in return THE BUSINESS HOUSES give a certain part of their profit to the ruling PARTY coffer!Yes,that does not mean,we the sensible INDIAN CITIZENS OF INDIA stop fighting for common facilities for all poor /rich.No where in the world( except some low down countries) any Govt. play with HUMAN SAFETY/health and their deprive their citizens of basic amenities.I traveled all over as a MARINE ENGINEER and that is my observation.With regards.BN DAS.Chartered Engineer (UK)KOLKATA more  
There has to be similar to swach bharat a swach pani and all agencies who supply water have to maintain this std and a gazette notification should come more  
I think the potable water standards are already there. The problem is that all municipalities are government bodies; so there is no penalty imposed on them if they do not comply with the standards. more  
Water becoming scarce day by day. People have to be careful and preserve for renewable utility. more
