Delhi Schools Vow To Recycle And Save 100% Water With Zero Liquid Discharge System
Since the Aam Aadmi Party-led (AAP) Delhi government has come to power in the national capital, they have been working relentlessly in improving the education system. From swankier classrooms to bridging the gap between parents, teachers, and students, the Delhi government has been doing a decent job. In yet another initiative taken by them involving schools, they have taken a decision to promote conservation of water in the Delhi government schools. It has asked all the schools affiliated to it to implement the zero liquid discharge system, a report in the Jagranjosh said.
The government had earlier undertaken the implementation of the rainwater harvesting to prevent wastage of water in the schools.
Delhi schools are given a 90-day window to implement the system as they aim to save water by recycling and reusing it through the zero discharge system initiative.
The system will help direct using wastewater for those activities for which freshwater is used in the school compound. Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister, Manish Sisodia while talking about the Zero Discharge System said, "In order to create awareness among students regarding the environment, the eco-club has been made years back. As per our latest step towards the same direction, the water that is being consumed in schools is recycled." Sisodia was quoted to as saying by Jagranjosh.
