This is one of the surface waters used as a water supply - including drinking water.
Here's another source of water used by many. You can see one person collecting water while others wash clothes. Just downstream from here was a thick film of scum on the water.
Here, we're analyzing water taken from the hand-dug well in a family compound. These wells are shared with other neighbors. We found them to be better than the surface waters but still contaminated with bacteria, including fecal coliform types.
This is the drilled well we found, unused and non- functioning.
The drilled well after being repaired!
