Robi takes initiative to ensure safe drinking water

Ensuring access to safe drinking water is one of the core elements of a public health system. The Government also putting a lot of efforts to achieve the targets of SDG 6: “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”.

With the technical support from the WaterAid Bangladesh, Robi has set up ten water plants in ten of the busiest railway stations. Bangladesh Railway also responded positively. These water projects are carried out under the slogan: “Nirapod Pani, Sushtho Jibon” with the help of Bangladesh Railway and WaterAid Bangladesh. The water plants are set up at Kamalapur, Dhaka Airport, Chittagong, Sylhet, Khulna, Rajshahi, Mymensing, Mohangonbg, Feni and Cumilla Railway Stations.

Each of these plants dispensing 5,000 litres of pure and safe drinking water per hour. The water coming through purifying units (Membrane & UV filter) has already earned the trust of the commuters travelling on trains. Maintenance of the plants and ensuring the quality of the water are done by regular testing in the laboratories of BUET, CUET, KUET, SUST and PWD.
