The Town of Maradu, Kerala, India is experiencing rapid growth and maintaining clean water and sanitation is an ongoing challenge. Pollution puts a strain on already insufficient sanitation infrastructure. An interdisciplinary group of graduate students (Urban & Regional Planning, Public Health, Environmental Engineering, and Architecture) prepared this report with the goal of promoting public health equity through improved water and sanitation systems. Students worked in partnership with the town government, Suchwita Mission, the Center for Science and Environment, and the College of Engineering in Trivandrum.
