The West Bengal Pilot Project : responding to community demands for safe drinking water in an arsenic affected area (English)

Many villages in West Bengal, India do not enjoy sustainable safe drinking water supplies. The situation is compounded by the presence of small but harmful concentrations of arsenic in the groundwater, the source of most villages' meager water supply. The Water and Sanitation Program-South Asia assisted local nongovernment organization, the Ramakrishna Mission Lolakiksha Parishad (the development unit of the Ramakrishna Mission at Narendrapur, West Bengal) in procuring funds from the Government of India for a community-based rural water supply pilot project to address the problem. This note documents the lessons learnt from the pilot project.
