    Field Visit Report of Farida, Laltu, Biswajit and Shilpi

    Status: Complete - Partial Success

    Operating Status:

    From the beginning this well was used for other purposes due to high organic smell. So from the panchayet they have installed a deep tube well (locally referred to as 'hibrid well'). Closure survey will be done but one more door-to-door campaign followed by another projector program will be done in October and November 2013 in this area where three more bi-tech wells have similar issues. The water of the deep tubewell will be tested for arsenic. If arsenic is absent in the dtw then the community will be encouraged to use the bi-tech well for irrigation purpose.
