“Water pollution by plastics and microplastics: A review of technical solutions from source to sea,” composed of a toolkit and catalogue, has been jointly developed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI).

In this catalogue there are brief descriptions of technologies that can be implemented to address the contamination of water bodies by plastics and microplastics. For each technology the information provided includes a description and examples of applications, opportunities, barriers and typical costs of implementation.

This Issue Brief aims to: (i) facilitate discussion on the need to properly address the existing issue of poor wastewater management in many Asian countries, in order to minimise the human health risks associated with SARS-COV-2 infections; (ii) identify possible routes of SARS-CoV-2 infections and contamination across water and wastewater servi

The State Government of Haryana on October 30, 2019, has issued Reuse of Treated Waste Water Policy-2019 to maximize the collection and treatment of sewage generated and reusing the treated waste water on a sustainable basis, thereby reducing dependency on fresh water resources and to promote treated waste water as an economic resource.

More investment is needed to make urban waste water treatment plants fit to meet the difficult challenges posed by the impacts of climate change, as well as the presence of antibiotics and other micro-pollutants in waste water, according to a European Environment Agency (EEA) briefing.

Microplastics are increasingly found in drinking water, but there is no evidence so far that this poses a risk to humans, according to a new assessment by the World Health Organization.

Speaking at the inauguration of a new water treatment plant at Chandrawal, he said 88% of all colonies in Delhi were getting piped water supply — an increase of 30% since AAP came to power in 2015.
