ATMS Dispense Drinking Water in New Delhi

India’s population is 1 billion plus and counting. Only a quarter of its people can access drinking water at home or at their premises according to UNICEF. The rest scramble to get drinking water from wherever they can. People, mostly women, line up for hours to collect water for their families. To mitigate this problem, the city of New Delhi, India’s capital, is banking on a new solution – ATMS that dispense water. Are water ATMs the solution for quenching urban India’s thirst?
