In a historical collaboration between the Information Technology University Lahore and University of Colorado (US), ATM water machines will be set up all across Punjab in order to provide the locals with clean drinking water.
According to reports the whole project will cost around 374,599 US dollars. The project will be undertaken under the Pakistan United States Science and Technology Cooperation program.
IT University’s Dr. Tauqeer Tauseef and Dr. Mustafa Naseem will be working together on this project and it will be completed under the supervision of America’s National Academy of Science and Higher Education Commission (HEC) Pakistan.
According to the details released by the IT University, research has shown that due to ineffective monitoring of the water filtration plants, locals are deprived of clean water facilities. It also says that Pakistan is on the brink of facing a severe water crises as the underground water level has now gone down to a 1000 cubic metre, which is alarming. Water ATM machines will be controlled electronically and it will be possible to measure the quality of the water as well.
According to the details the project will begin soon.
