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 11 PPB tested on 30th June 2008. The Total coliform and Fecal coliform both were found as 'undetected'. Date of water collection for bacteria tests was on 6th December 2008.

Learnings

Knowledge of project and process for sharing

Even though the quality of water is normal people are not accepting this traditional mode of water supply. There is a need of more publicity of the use of the dugwell water that are being used in the neighboring villages. Promoting this modified design of dugwell through media, newspaper, TV, Radio is lacking that would have enhanced the efficient use of self managed water systems.

Impact

People Impacted: 17

Health meeting and villages meetings have been organized in this community-based-group. The discussions 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. Photos of the Health meeting will be uploaded shortly
