In september 5 2008, families (19 consumers) were drinking water from this dugwell and stopped from october onwards due to technical problem. Due to heavy rainfall the water became turbid and two rings got displaced. Repair work has been scheduled.

Register is being created.

People Getting Other Benefits: 50

Health meeting and villages meetings have been organized in this community-based-group. The discussion were on 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. The register is being created.
