Year Event1829 First well-documented water filter built by James Simpson for the Chelsea Water Company of London.1849 An estimated 110,000 people die from cholera in the UK.1854 John Snow removes the handle from the Broad Street pump in an effort to stop the transmission of cholera in London.1872–1874 First water filtration plants in the U.S. built in Poughkeepsie, NY, and Hudson, NY.1884 Robert Koch identifies Vibrio cholera as the causal agent of cholera and describes the germ theory of disease. Experiments on water filtration conducted in Lawrence, MA. This leads to the first rapid sand filter in 1893 and an1887 observed 79 percent decrease in typhoid fever mortality over the next 5 years. Rienecke observes that increases in the bacterial content of drinking water in Hamburg, Germany, corresponded to1892 increases in infant mortality and report a 50 percent decline in infant mortality from diarrheal disease in the year after Hamburg started to filter the public water supply.1893 Chlorination used to treat sewage effluent in Brewster, NY, to protect New York City drinking water.1897 Chlorination of drinking water in Maidstone, Kent, UK, after an outbreak of typhoid fever.1902 First continuous chlorination of a water supply in Belgium.1904 10 percent of U.S. urban population receives filtered water.1907 46 U.S. cities using filtration to treat drinking water.1908 First continuous, large-scale use of chlorination for an urban water supply in the U.S. in Jersey City, NJ. 36 percent of U.S. urban population receives filtered water. Allan Hazen writes enthusiastically about the benefits of water1914 chlorination.1920 Earliest data on occurrence and causes of waterborne disease outbreaks in the U.S. is collected.1930 27 percent of community water supplies in the U.S. have disinfection facilities.1920–1935 Typhoid fever is the most commonly recognized waterborne disease in the U.S.1936–1961 Shigellosis is the most commonly recognized waterborne disease in the U.S. Outbreak (16,000 cases) of waterborne salmonellosis in Riverside, CA. First documented waterborne outbreak of giardiasis1965 in the U.S. occurs at Aspen, CO.1971–1980 Giardiasis becomes the most commonly recognized waterborne disease.1975 First recognized outbreak of waterborne disease caused by toxigenic E. coli in Crater Lake National Park, OR.1984 First recorded waterborne outbreak of cryptosporidiosis occurs in Texas.1989 First recorded waterborne outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 occurs in Missouri (243 cases, 4 deaths). Largest recorded waterborne disease outbreak in U.S. history caused by Cryptosporidium in Milwaukee, WI (estimated1993 400,000 cases).Sources: Craun (1986), Hunter (1997), ILSI (1993), Long mate (1966), NRC (1977), Sedgwick and MacNutt (1910).

3Link all growthpermissions to Pune’swater carrying capacity
State Of Pune’s Water Resources1. More than 750 sq km catchment area to provide water to 450 sq km city2. Pune cannot support any more growth without many dry weeks and a significant reduction in water per person3. Continued dependence on water imports will result in regular water stress and scarcity4. For any water security Pune has no option other than to ensure its groundwater is recharged5. Pune is destroying its lifeline to water6. Pune is loosing its groundwater as it converts its nalas and rivers to gutters7. Pune is putting the health of its residents to huge risk8. Pune has moved from becoming water stressed to water scarce
Recommendations1. Enhance Pune’s water carrying capacity by restoring nalas, rivers and lakes to natural form and free them from human management and intervention2. Develop waterbodies and their setback regions into perpetual easements for urban forestry and conservation3. Link all growth permissions to Pune’s water carrying capacity
