GENERAL SITUATION

     Payswara is a village with 55 houses and an approximate population of 270 villagers

PROBLEM

      Due to a leaking tank , the water supply dries up during the dry season between December and February resulting in the villagers having to make a 40 minute round trip to a tank in Bharkola to collect their water.

AIM

      To enable the villagers to have an all year round Water supply

PROJECT

      A Collection Chamber with filter was built at the spring leading to a newly built tank of 25000 litres lower down. The tank was fitted with taps below, so when necessary the villagers can fit hoses between the tank and their village. Another tap was built in the village itself. This provides the villagers with an all year round supply of clean water. The cost of the project was £2200.00.
