Duration: 2-12 months; Desired Start: As soon as possible

 Project Needs and Description:                                                                                                  

India is facing a critical problem of water scarcity due to declining water sources. Hence water treatment has become an area of significant importance. The domestic waste water may generate effluents with reduced levels of nitrogen, solids and organic matter, but often contain higher levels of surfactants, oils, boron and salts. These components of grey-water may have harmful effects on soil, plants and underground water.

One of our WaSH project projects under the SWASH Village programme initiative is aimed at Grey-water Recovery through Bio-remediation and small constructed wetlands in rural households and community places.

By modeling appropriate technologies and social behaviours for food production, water, and sanitation in rural areas in India, we hope to create a water conservation culture. Our past projects under research and development include using reeds and other greens with sand and gravel, as well as a biochar filter. 

We look forward to more curious and motivated minds to join us and improve these systems and/or innovate something new that is economical, resilient and easy to use at household level.

Location: One of five villages of different topographic environments (high mountains of Jammu & Kashmir, hills of Himachal Pradesh, agricultural plains of Punjab and desert region of Rajasthan) in India.

Ability to work both on your own and as part of an international team.
