FACT: Water supplied for industrial purpose is drawn from the fag end of the downstream, which otherwise enters the sea and hence does not affect water for agriculture, domestic or drinking purpose.

Sterlite Copper consumes only 19% of the water supplied to industries in Thoothukudi. 60% of Sterlite Copper’s water requirement is met through desalinated sea water. Water conservation is a key priority of Sterlite Copper and various initiatives like rainwater harvesting and Reverse Osmosis plant has yielded excellent results.

For the expansion project, Sterlite Copper will only be using desalinated seawater and water from treated sewage.
