The world faces persistent water-related risks, with the gap between demand and supply growing at an alarming rate. Industry is an important stakeholder in the management of water resources and, as a responsible member of the community, must be proactive in addressing water-related risks. , pulp and paper, textiles, fertilizers, etc.) is already putting pressure on the limited freshwater resources in India and around the world. This, coupled with increasing water demand from other sectors like infrastructure development, agriculture, domestic, etc., leads to major conflicts over water availability.

Water supply and wastewater management are becoming increasingly difficult and expensive and are therefore an important aspect of the sustainability of any industry. Industries that are highly dependent on water for their production sometimes have to reduce their production due to water scarcity, mainly during the summer season. Such scenarios have become more frequent in recent years due to increasing water stress. Therefore, it is very important for industries to use water wisely and reduce their water footprint as much as possible in order to be sustainable in the future.

Optimizing water use, improving water accounting systems and identifying water losses and water saving opportunities can be effective approaches to reducing consumption. of water. In addition, efficient wastewater treatment technologies and recycling and reuse practices can further reduce effluent consumption and generation. In addition, substantial costs associated with water and wastewater management, such as water supply, cost of pumping, cost of water treatment (chemicals), cost of treatment and effluent disposal, etc. can be effectively reduced through better water and wastewater management and the conduct of periodic water audits.

Understanding the relevance of the subject, the Center for Science and the Environment (CSE) has developed a two-week online course with the aim of providing a broader understanding of the above aspects of water auditing, waste water management and recycling. The course will be delivered online through technological learning tools such as recorded video presentations, discussions with experts and reading material.

The course will be conducted online through technological learning tools such as recorded video presentations, discussions with experts and reading material. At the end of the course, participants will receive an electronic certificate.

Industry professionals, EHS managers, environmental consultants, environmental engineers, environmental regulators, environmental laboratories, academic institutions, students, researchers and others aspiring to work in the field of water auditing and wastewater management.


  • Water Audit – Introduction, Scope and Methodology
  • Preparation of an industry-specific water audit questionnaire
  • Water audit instrumentation, metering and accounting
  • Preparation of water circuit diagram and water balance with industry specific case studies
  • Specific water consumption & benchmarking
  • Understand the basics of water utilities – pumps and cooling towers
  • New CGWA notification covering mandatory water audit
