If 15 years ago someone had given suggestion to sell the pure water, I’m sure people made good joke or laughed. But nowadays mineral or purified water is billion dollar industry. People are ready to spend any amount for water bottle, because we know it’s not easy to get pure or clean water.
Water is the most valuable resource of nature. Even though Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface less than 1% of the earth’s water is suitable for drinking.

4,All waste water from the industries should be treated purified and reused by the factory.
5.Waste water contamination into rivers must be strictly stopped by taking strong legal action on irresponsible factories.
6.New water ponds and reservoirs should be built and the old ones should be kept clean to collect all possible amount of rain water.
