There is no piped/ filtered water supply in the rural areas. People drink water out of shallow wells. This water is unfit for human consumption. It is untreated and has high Ph levels. Clean water is available at a depth of 600 feet, which requires costly machinery and water storage tanks.
A campaign has been launched to generate funds for the construction of water tanks to store clean water pumped from a depth of 600 feet. This source will be available to the school children as well as the community.
