for World Solidarity has utilised the services of IHS Water Quality
Testing Laboratory (WQTL) for Ground Water Potability Test (GPT)
under Sustainable Ground Water Management Project (SuGWM). This
project attempts to address the inequalities in access to water for
drinking and agriculture and promote efficient water use methods
through community-based actions and sustainable methods of resource
governance at local level in selected project areas.
A key innovation by the laboratory is the design
of Water Sample Collection Kit. Pre-sterilised bottles are packed in
polythene bags along with Water Sample Collection guides, Sample
Collection Record, and a carry bag to easily transport the sample to
the laboratory. This design helped the SuGWM project personnel to
transport the water sample within 24 hours from the faraway project
areas i.e Anantapur and Warangal districts.
