Whenever we run short of cash, we rush to an ATM to withdraw money and life’s beautiful again! What if there was a similar provision which one could rely on every time there was a paucity of water? Sounds too far-fetched? Well, WaterHealth India (WHIN), an initiative committed to supplying water to the areas affected by lack of access to clean and safe pure drinking water, is turning what seems like a distant dream, into reality by installing water ATMs in various parts of India.

Water ATM (also known as Water Vending Machine) is an automated water purification system which provides access to safe water access to people, round the clock. Water ATMs are a supreme example of the miracles that science can do to provide the bounties of nature to mankind in plenty. The machines have been designed in such a way that gives it the ability to purify and dispense water, which makes for an ideal solution for high footfall locations like schools, railways stations, bus depots etc. Another one of its many impressive features is that it has remote monitoring capabilities which facilitate automatic alerts that send out an indication every time the water reaches the refill level of the tank.

If you are wondering about the water dispensing process, it’s as easy as pie! All you have to do is insert a coin and the elixir of life, or water, as they call it, is ready for collection at Rs 5 per litre for non-bottles water, Rs 8 per litre for bottled water and Rs 10 for 20 litres of water.

As WaterHealth India steps into the second decade of its operation, the company has hastened its work towards its mission of serving 100 million people by 2020, by setting up over 125 Water Vending Machines (WVMs) in railways stations across India to provide mobile underserved consumers affordable options for safe and purified drinking water,
