Water for Bheemunipakalu
VILLAGE PROFILE FOR BHEEMUNIPAKALU
There is only one well that is available at the village of Bheemunipakalu which is located in the midst of agricultural fields. It gets contaminated with agricultural effluents very often. This single source also provides low yield and is insufficient to cater to the needs of the entire village. This is killing a lot of time for the community. About 6 hours of each family's time is spent in fetching water only.
As the villagers have discovered the right way to solve their drinking water problem, they have shown interest in contributing their labour towards the cause. They have formed a 9 member Village Development Committee and identified a spring source, which is at a distance of about 0.6 kilometers near Kommula Vada Konda Hillock.
The record of the elevation at proposed source shows 503 meters and 482 meters at the village level. The request of the community has been found to be genuine and recommended for the Gravity Fed Water Supply System to solve the drinking water problem of the village for the present and future generations. The community has also agreed to own the maintenance by saving some portion of their earnings for the repairs of the system, if required.
