- Impact Assessment (M&E) Phase Project completed on 31 Dec, 2008 Implementation Phase
- Implementation Phase Project started on 1 Jan, 2008 Preparation Phase
Creating and measuring long-term impact
For 40 dugwells USD1360
Unusual and unexpected issues faced during project execution
Research and Development is part of the project. The arsenic level was 11 PPB tested on 30th June 2008. The Total coliform and Fecal coliform both were found as 'undetected'. Date of water collection for bacteria tests was on 6th December 2008.
Knowledge of project and process for sharing
Even though the quality of water is normal people are not accepting this traditional mode of water supply. There is a need of more publicity of the use of the dugwell water that are being used in the neighboring villages. Promoting this modified design of dugwell through media, newspaper, TV, Radio is lacking that would have enhanced the efficient use of self managed water systems.

Health meeting and villages meetings have been organized in this community-based-group. The discussions were on arsenic health effects and personal hygiene. A training program on the maintenance of the dugwells (including chlorination) is given to develop a sense of ownership and to make the program sustainable. Photos of the Health meeting will be uploaded shortly
