Learnings

Knowledge of project and process for sharing

31st December: Boring is complete. Tried to do digging at this site but due to the water table being still high digging is postponed that will be done in the second week of January 2012.
________________________
Due to cancellation of sites at Swarupnagar, Bashirhat and Baduria new sites were selected following the selection procedure of village meetings and geocoding that delayed in construction and only boring could be done at some sites. Followed by the heavy monsoon rain since end of July to present there was further delay. The monsoon rain will continue till end of October and hoping to complete the project in November 2011.
