Water for Bakang and Balatsit - update

Here are some pictures of the new wells, taken recently by Nura. The top picture is the second Bakang well after a bit of cleaning up by the community folks. Pix 2 and 3 show the storage tanks near the new well at the crossroads in Balatsit. They've installed a fence around the tanks and they also dug in some steps (more than visible here) to make it easier to get up and down the slope. There's also a fence around the well itself (not shown here).

You can see we've got some happy people there! Our next trip is planned for January, to start connecting everything with a storage system at the top of the school hill. Stay tuned!
