Self-supporting community- based mitigation program that provides arsenic safe water using modified dugwells along with public education on water related health effects.

Sustainability

Creating and measuring long-term impact

For 40 dugwells USD1360

Other Issues

Unusual and unexpected issues faced during project execution

Research and Development is part of the project. The arsenic level was 19 PPB tested on 30th June 2008. The Total coliform and Fecal coliform counts of the dugwell water was found as ''undetected'. Date of water collection for bacteria tests was on 6th December 2008.

Learnings

Knowledge of project and process for sharing

Though the arsenic level is low and both Total and fecal coliform counts are NIL and water is clear and normal to taste the dugwell water is not efficiently used. Public health awareness programs are needed more.

Impact

People Impacted: 7

People Getting Safe Drinking Water: 7

As of June 2012, 7 consumers belonging to 2 families use this well.
_____________________________
According to the register record of July 2011 the total consumers=43; Families=11; Male=26, Female=17, children <5=3.

People Getting Other Benefits: 50

Health meetings and village meetings have been organized in this community-based-group. The discussion were 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. Photo of such meetings will be available shortly.
