Self-supporting community- based mitigation program that provides arsenic safe water using modified bore-dugwell/bi-tech wells along with public education on water related health effects.

Narrative

This new site #PW276 is in the Goyalbari Poschimpara village under the jurisdiction of the Deuli panchayat of Chakdah block in the district of Nadia. Pilot test was not done here because sand layer is found at 5-6 feet assessed from the construction of unmetalled road currently going on in this area. Arsenic test was not done also because there are patients of arsenic caused disease lives in this community. The land is donated by Nasiruddin Mondol, an arsenic patient.
-------------------------------------------------
Though there was high arsenic in a shallow tubewell sand layer suitable for the bi-tech well was not found within the depth of 30 feet. Hence this site was cancelled.

Impact

People Getting Safe Drinking Water: 40

Registers will be created as soon as the community starts using the water from this bore-dugwell.

People Getting Other Benefits: 30

Awareness programs such as village meetings before and after the construction of the well, health meeting and if needed projector program is done during the first year of construction. During this time the villagers are informed and educated on water borne diseases, health effects of arsenic in the drinking water and also educate, both, young and old, mainly women on how practicing proper personal hygiene prevents contagious diseases. At times more than 30 people gather at such meetings.

Maintenance/Operating Costs Annual, in US$: $40
