Ecology in the Dham

hari bol prabhu,
i found a solution for sanitation and water crisis which can be implemented in vrindavan,mathura with initiative from senior devotees from iskcon.this article is writtenby US ambassador to india David mulford The hindu newspaper 22 march,06
On February 7 in Chennai the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister inaugurated a public-private partnership that is now providing water and sewerage services to thousands of Tirupur area residents. The project was initiated in the mid-1990s when the Tirupur Exporters Association recognised the need to improve the area’s infrastructure to remain competitive in the knitwear industry but did not have the resources to finance the project.
The solution was to establish the New Tirupur Area Development Corporation, Limited, a group of private and public entities, which became the first public-private partnership in the water and sanitation sector in South Asia operating on a Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) basis.

With a focus on the poor from the outset, the public-private partnership in Tirupur covered the water and sanitation needs of the entire city population, including close to 80,000 slum residents. In India, virtually all water and waste water systems are currently managed by the public sector, and most fail to meet the needs of th
