    PW237:Visited by Meera Smith and Laltu Midhya to collect water sample to test for arsenic and for inspection.

    This well is working well. People are satisfied with the quality of water that is better than their private tubewell for it does not have iron nor any arsenic. Some users have stomach complaints of gas/wind that they say is much improved after the use of the new treated bore-dugwell water.
