INTRODUCTION It is needless to mention that water, a compound of Hydrogen and Oxygen is a precious natural gift which is very essential for survival of mankind including animals. The water used for potable purposes should be free from undesirable impurities. The water available from untreated sources such as Well, Boreholes and Spring is generally not hygienic and safe for drinking. Thus it is desirable and necessary to purify the water and supply under hygienic conditions for human drinking purpose. As the name implies, the mineral water is the purified water fortified with requisite amounts of minerals such as Barium, Iron, Manganese, etc which can be absorbed by human body. It is either obtained from natural resources like spring and drilled wells or it is fortified artificially by blending and treating with mineral salts. The mineral water shall be manufactured and packed under hygienic conditions in properly washed and cleaned bottles in sterilized conditions. MARKET POTENTIAL Unfortunately sufficient safe potable water is not available everywhere in the country; either harmful chemical substance is found in the layers of the earth which enter into water or it may be contaminated due to pathogenic micro-organisms. If such water is consumed, the body suffers from water born diseases. Due to this, it has become imperative to process and bottle safe potable water for the mankind in prevailing conditions. The demand for purified water becomes more during summer season. Although few companies have already entered in the bottling of safe potable water and mineralized water, but still huge gap is there in between demand and supply at all metropolitan-cities and towns. The product is widely accepted in offices, restaurants, railway stations, airport, bus stands, and hospitals and to some extent even in rich house-holds. So there is good scope for establishing the units for processing and bottling plain and mineralized drinking water in different parts of the country.

The impurities may be removed by Reverse Osmosis techniques also. filling. 56.40 lakhs 20 K. No Objection Certificate from competent authority of State Pollution Control Board. They should develop Kitchen Garden in the factory premises to utilize waste water from the plant. It is then passed through series of micro fillers comprising of 5 micron. A known quantity is pumped into the above tank where the water is dozed with alum for coagulation with heavy metals or insoluble matters. Pollution Control: Although this unit will not affect the environment. Unnecessary operation of machines should be controlled to avoid excess consumption of electricity.W. and capping machine fitted with an ozone generator. The supernatant water is taken to the chlorination tank where primary disinfecion is brought about by bubbling chlorine gas. colour and also for dechlorination.4 micron filter followed by ultraviolet disinfection system for terminal disinfection. Energy conservation Suitable measures should be adopted o use appropriate amount of fuel and electricity. The water is then passed through sand filters for trapping of undissolved impurities. Packing is done in PET bottles of 1 liter capacity through an automatic rinsing. but the entrepreneurs are advised to obtain. New Delhi 110002. Natural ventilation in production premises may be made available to avoid use of electric power during day hours. The water after sand filtration is passed through Carbon filters for removal of odour.TECHNICAL ASPECTS Processing and Bottling Raw water to be processed is collected in tanks. Bahadur shah Zafar Marg. The promoters should arrange periodic auditing of electrical consumption. Quality control and standards The plain drinking water has to be bottled in pet bottle as per IS Specifications (IS:14543:1998: Packaged Drinking Water and IS:13428:1998:Packaged Mineral Water). as the unit will be running in three shifts. The bottles after capping are shrink wrapped (Optional) and packed in corrugated boxes of one dozen each. Manik bhawan. The water after coagulation is allowed to settle for an hour. 1 micron and 0.
