About Water Expo 2019
The National Water Mission of India has chartered the goal to improve water efficiency by 20 percent. This goal can be achieved only by ensuring the efficiency on demand as well as supply side through appropriate water distribution networks and technology interventions for Recycle & Reuse of wastewater.
WaterEX World Expo 2019 and concurrent conference will engage the water & wastewater treatment technology and services providers , Engineering & EPC consultants, Automation technology providers with the key decision makers from Industry, Municipal Corporations and Pollution Control Boards.
One day conference on the theme “Urban Sustainability through Smart water Management” has been planned under the leadership of Mr. S Masood Husain ,Chairman Central Water Commission, Ministry of Water Resources, RD & GR, GoI & Chairman – WaterEX World Expo 2019 and Mr. Ashish Mathur, Managing Director, Tata Steel Special Economic Zone Limited The conference program will have case study presentations around innovative techniques of optimizing use of water , new technology interventions to recycle wastewater for reuse and use of digital technologies for smart water management.
The exhibitors will get an opportunity to interact with the Managing Directors, Heads of Maintenance, Operations, Technical Managers from multiple end user industries like Refining & Petrochemicals, Chemicals & Fertilizers, Specialty Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals along with the decision makers from municipalities of major cities and regulators from state pollution control boards during the four day event in Mumbai.
CHEMTECH launched WaterEX World Expo series of international exhibitions and conferences in 2009 which has evolved as one of the most sought after B2B platforms to showcase water technologies and engage with the users from wide array of end users from various industrial sectors and municipalities.

Lack of Consensus amongst concerned States is the Most important challenge in the implementation of Interlinking of Rivers (ILR). The States surplus in water resources do not agree to such surpluses. It is difficult to have agreement between donor and donee states as the latter in general demand more water.

When we look at the water management, the issue of quality is something that becomes very important. Because, as we know, water is infinite. We don’t have the liberty to produce water out of nothing. We have to recycle the water. The nature also does the same recycling though hydrological cycle. We have to increasingly think about the reuse and recycling of water so that the going demand of water is met.

Water – On one hand, this is the global resource as the continuity of life depends on this and on the other, it is a very local subject. India with its large population and limited water resources needs innovative solutions. The objective of “WATEREX 2019” is to engage with all stakeholders on efficient water management to ensure sufficiency for everyone for all times to come.

I understand that CHEMTECH WATEREX WORLD EXPO provides important platform to show case products, services and solutions available in the water industry. I hope the event will provide comprehensive insight into the water industry–best practices, latest technologies, alternative solutions and business prospectives.

WaterEX is creating awareness for clean water in all homes, clean ganga and other rives as well as conservation of water through wastewater management. Stainless steel can ensure the purity of water in storage and distribution.

97 percent of the world‘s water is salty. Desalination technologies have become a feasible method for obtaining freshwater and are important in arid regions with insufficient reserves of fresh water.

With rising adoption of IoT (Internet of Things), we would be delighted to see innovative product applications of intelligent flow control systems in domestic use.

Waste water can no longer be considered a ‘waste’ product to be discarded but a resource that can have potential value if used in a ‘fit for purpose’ manner and can be safely used for non-potable purpose such as open space irrigation, toilet flushing and a variety of industrial and agricultural uses. More importantly if we reuse waste water we can conserve high quality water for drinking and other specialised high value uses.
Dr. Y B SontakkeJoint Director (WPC)Maharashtra Pollution Control Board
Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) monitors ground water quality once in six months. Based on the stringency of the parameters and its relative importance in the overall quality of water for drinking purposes each parameter has been assigned specific weightage by CPCB. These weights indicate the relative harmfulness when present in water. Nine parameters (pH, Total Hardness, Calcium Hardness, Magnesium Hardness, Chloride, Total Dissolved Solids, Fluoride, Nitrate, Sulphate ) are considered for calculating Water Quality Index of ground water.

Absence of an acceptable definition of environmental needs and, also, the absence of an agreement on the priority of environmental flow releases. There is lack of both the understanding of and availability of quantitative data on relationships between river flows and ecological characteristics of river. While the domestic and agriculture requirements are easily quantifiable, it is still a challenge to decide as to what comprises the legitimate ecological needs--- wide variations in assessment of E-flows by different methods/agencies.
Mr. Shiv Nandan KumarChief EngineerNarmada Basin Organization, CWC, Government of India
Given the magnitude of water demand and skewed nature of its availability in space and time, structural interventions are bound to occur affecting the Longitudal connectivity of rivers. The reality that huge population lives in flood planes of rivers forces adoption of flood protection measures like levees/ embankments affecting lateral connectivity of rivers. Excessive river mining activities affect the zone of interaction between surface & ground water. Variations in rainfall pattern affect temporal component of Aviral Dhara.

High Speed Aerators are first used in aerated ponds and lagoons. They are often light weight and thus can be mounted on floats and good for applications where water depth varies. High Speed Aerators are portable and have low initial and installation costs and easy to add to existing systems. These aerators are of low efficiency; produce liquid cooling that can reduce biological activity and suffer from icing problems, high floc shearing.
