LOw-cost innovative Technology for water quality monitoring and water resources management for Urban and rural water Systems in India
The LOTUS project assembles 21 outstanding European and Indian organisations (large industrial enterprises, public institutions, research institutes, SMEs and NGOs), with the aim to co-create, co-design and co-develop innovative low cost technology for tackling India’s water and sanitation issues. It is coordinated by Ecole Polytechnique, Paris, France, and Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.
Project ID: 820881
Call: H2020-SC5-12 – EU-INDIA Water Co-operation – Research and Innovation Action
LOTUS is co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme and by the Indian Government, Ministry of Science and Technology
Start Date: 1st February 2019, duration: 48 months
Total budget: 5.48 Mln. €
Hydrocontrol in collaboration with the University of Thessaly, Greece will develop a Field Guide on operating under Intermittent Water Supply regime and transitioning to 24×7 operation. The guide will describe in a practical manner how to move from intermittent supplies (IWS) to 24x7 in a cost-effective manner. The guide will focus on a specific case study (Guwahati, India) and will include methods such as improved operations and maintenance, restructuring the network to improve hydraulic performance, replacing part of the distribution system as needed, and introducing Active Leakage Control.
