PUBLIC VENDING DRINKING WATER DISPENSER

Published on May 17, 2016 um 18:11

Explain your idea in details:

The idea is to provide low-cost, highly efficient automatic drinking water dispensers in densely populated areas of the city of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. This project is new and non-existing in Tanzania, and it is designed to achieve two main goals: Firstly, to eliminate recurring outbreaks of cholera in the city by providing safe, affordable and easily accessible drinking water, and secondly, to reduce the use of plastic bottled-water, that causes environmental pollution due to lack of effective systems of recycling plastic water bottle and in addition also higher price of bottled (in Disposable plastic bottles) drinking water makes one to think about finding a solution of that problem for the betterment of our society and environment. This business will provide self-service public automatic water dispensers that will provide drinking water at cheap price to fill the tumbler or refill reusable bottle in public places like university campuses, bus and railway stations. The vending machines will sell the water in volume- based refill. The machines will accept a Tanzania shillings 200 coin for refiling a glass of 300ml. This is cheaper compared to prices of drinking water in disposable bottles. The vending machines will sell both cold & hot drinking water in volume-based refills. Vision statement for the business is to be the best drinking water dispenser in five years to come with several stations at various major institutions (public spots, universities) and with the ability to increase its capital and employ more workers. The mission of the business will be to Provide and promote high quality services and ensuring sustainable safe water systems and environmental conservation using the quality inputs available. The objective of the project is to generate profit and provide the best and high quality services (safe drinking water) that will satisfy Tanzania citizen.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Tanzania recently experienced an outbreak of cholera, and according to World Health Organization (WHO) recent reports in October 2015, 4922 Cholera cases were reported with 74 deaths. The city of Dar-es salaam alone accounted for 3500 cases (about 70%) of all cases. Dar es salaam faces a huge problem with plastic pollution due to overuse of bottled water and lack of proper recycling systems to deal with the waste. For this reason, my project idea is to start public drinking water dispensers in the densely populated areas of the city of Dar es salaam, where access to clean drinking water is poor, and there is excessive use of disposable plastic-bottle. The idea is intended to achieve two main environmental goals: Firstly, to eliminate recurring outbreaks of water born diseases (cholera) in the city by providing safe, affordable and easily accessible drinking water, and secondly, to reduce the use of disposable plastic bottled-water, that causes environmental pollution due to lack of effective systems of recycling plastic water bottle. According to the Tanzania Bureau of Statistic 2012 national census, the city of Dar es Salaam (where the business is expected to be taken), the region had a population of 4,364,54. In Dar es Salaam 38% of households get their water from wells or water vendors, while 62% use tap water. Of these, 8% have their water piped house. The projected market share of three (3) stations; UBUNGO, TAZARA and UDSM cafeteria, is expected initially to be an average of 1000 (one thousand) customers per day receiving safe drinking water at dispensers. The Tanzania Government introduced an outright ban on Disposable plastic bags in 2006. Manufacturing or import of bags of a thickness between 30 and 65 microns has been forbidden so the government and environmentalist will support the program

Plans for implementation and sustainability

This project will install public drinking water dispensers in three city areas of Dar es salaam: Ubungo Buss station (the biggest bus station in Tanzania), The university of Dar es salaam and Mbezi Primary School (that has over 1000 students). The first stage is to handle the legal logistics of the project. We are currently talking to different experts of water sanitation and government officials, which would get us started with the legal work. The second stage is to assemble water dispensers that could use a manual refill system or a Point of Use Water System (the reservoir is connected to an existing water system). The refillable dispensers will be placed at Mbezi School that does not have an existing water system. At Ubungo Bus Station and University of Dar es salaam, we will install a Point of Use water system. Both types of dispensers will have high efficiency filter machines (Cyst and Lead Reduction Filters) and will be connected to a vending machine that accepts Tanzanian coins. Simultaneously, we will start educating the surround communities where the dispensers will be available, and this will go hand with hand with advertising the project. We also plan to collaborate with organizations working in environmental conservation to get monetary and publicity support for the project.

THIS IS A GREAT IDEA BECAUSE IT SHOWS CREATIVITY AND DETERMINATION TO SOLVE COMMUNITY PROBLEMS. THESE MACHINES FOR CLEANING UP WATER WOULD BE USED IN SCHOOLS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY AND IN VILLAGES! I SUPPORT THE IDEA I BELIEVE SCIENTISTS WHO DEAL WITH WATER SHOULD BE INVOLVED TO MAKE SURE IT SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE.

thumbs up for this bold action and sustainable business idea. indeed a low cost solution to control Cholera.

yet did you envisage that existing businesses offering bottle water services may likely lose their livelihood? that means a negative impact on competitor side, which can open up business risk or threat to operations. from an economic and social impacts viewpoint, how do you intend to tackle this potential tension?

I met Victor at GES 2016 and his project was one of the most interesting ones at the Summit. I am sure that his project will help the pollution problem and the water problem in that community.

The fact that in his project he is solving two different and related problems, for me, is something that helps it to be better compared with other projects.

I believe it to be a very brilliant idea which will help better develop people in the area affected. In reference to the hygiene issue stated, I believe this issue can simply be tackled by constant supervision. As stated also about the project it was said that water sanitation has been put into consideration already.

Well!! one most important thing in life is water which move hand in hand with human health, it is actually a brilliant idea considering Public drinking water dispenser, I do find it interesting. wishing you all the best.

May 18, 2016 17:41

yah!!! To ensure its hygiene level, These machines are connected to the mains water supply (Dar es salaam water supply) and typically chill and filter the water as it passes through the machine Both types of dispensers will have high efficiency filter machines (Cyst and Lead Reduction Filters) and proper maintenance has to be done every half hour, to check the pump and replace the water gallon that runs out of water. Water hygiene Expertise claim that because of the filtration, UV sterilization and direct chill technology that dispensers they produce water that is chilled, chlorine free and bacteriological safe.

May 18, 2016 15:28

The idea "PUBLIC DRINKING WATER DISPENSER" is a very good one especially for public use considering the society. But is it hygienic?
