Water mission visit has activists on the boil

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: Even as various Left and progressive organisations as well as non-governmental organisations plan a series of protests to mark the arrival of the United States Water Technology Trade Mission on Monday, the U.S. Department of Commerce, which is organising the mission's visit, has sought to clarify its position.

In a release issued here to The Hindu through the U.S. Consulate General in Chennai, an official said: “The aim of the Water Technology Trade Mission is to explore opportunities that would help Indian entities treat and recycle sewage water for industrial purposes, as well as provide purified water for the population.”

Products and related services represented on the mission include specialised pumps, water testing instruments, separation screens, wastewater treatment technologies, and water purification technologies, the release said.

Protests planned

A coalition of organisations under the banner, Peoples' Campaign for Right to Water, is planning a protest in front of the BWSSB office here on Monday.
