Multi use water systems

The BICAS project in the far west of Nepal has developed new multi use water systems.  These provide access to safe drinking water and irrigation facilities for farmers and reduces the time and drudgery required to collect water.

Water is collected in a reservoir tank and fed to taps for domestic and agricultural use among the community. Rainwater, excess water from the tap and the overflow of the reservoir tank are collected in the pond.

This drastically reduces the time and drudgery required to collect water, freeing women and children to focus on productive activities like income generation and studying.
