Handpumps, Bore Well, But No Water

23rd March 2015 | Dhandamunda Panchayat, Khaprakhol Block, Odisha | Lambodar Takri

Rita Ghana, a resident of this area elaborates on how the shoddy implementation of a scheme by the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Department has left thousands thirsty. Out of the 15 hand pumps originally installed, only 7 work today. People have to walk about half a kilometre to get water.

A few years ago, all the infrastructure was put into place– a tank, a bore well, pipelines and taps. “The even put a motor and said that the project was successful. But less water went inside the pipe and more water went waste,” says Rita to Community Correspondent Lambodar Takri.

Lambodar is now helping the community access their right to water, you can help them.

Call to Action: Please call the Junior Engineer at the Khaprakhol Rural Water Sanitation and Supply Department on +91 9439210459 and ask him to immediately fix the hand pumps in the area.
