The Bhusawal Division of Indian Railways has fitted specially designed aerators in available basin-taps of Tejas Express (Train No. 22119/22120) as a step towards conservation of water.
The aerators through their fine pores break the stream of incoming water into fine water sub-streams. Hence, while the outflowing water is sufficient for utilisation towards cleanliness, the aerators prevent wastage of water by reducing excess water flow.
Conservation of water in en route consumption is not only an effective way to avoid en route watering complaints in trains but is also a small but significant step in conserving the precious resource of water, an official press release said.
The aerators are to be fitted as a one-time measure and have been fitted in existing taps of Tejas Express without any modification or replacements of available taps.
"The initiative reduces the water consumption of each tap by 1/4th and hence is a significant step towards water conservation," the release added.
