Description:

Phase I of the Danida assisted Rural Drinking Water Supply Project in coastal Orissa was implemented during August 1985 to March 1988. During this period approximately 1650 tube wells with handpumps were constructed in 3 blocks of the 20 blocks of the project area. By 1987, the functionality study and maintenance system indicated that pump were falling into disuse to deterioration of water quality in the wells. Offensive odour, unacceptable colour and taste were common features observed from these wells.

This report analyses the problem and put forwards practical recommendations.
