Abstract

EIGHT HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE IN INDIA LIVE IN RURAL VILLAGES. Two hundred sixty million people in East India lack access to safe drinking water. The water readily available to them is contaminated by fecal pathogens and is the single largest cause of illness and death among children, lost income and productivity for adults, and high costs of medical treatment. Most people live in hamlets of fewer than three hundred households, too small to be viable for current water companies to deliver to them.
