Water for Varthanapalli
VILLAGE PROFILE OF VARTHANAPALLI
Only two springs are available in the village of Varthanapalli. Due to this, the community is facing huge problems in fetching water. The entire village is dependent on these two springs which are located steep below the village and are 0.4 kilometers away. The other problem that the community suffers from is that it is taking about 20 to 30 minutes to fetch water from these springs.
The community leaders approached VJNNS and have showed them an identified spring location which is at a distance of 1.5 kilometers. As it provides a good yield, they have requested for GWFSS. The villagers have been duly motivated and they have shown interest to contribute their labor contribution. They have formed a 11 member Village Development Committee to solve their drinking water problem. The identified spring-source is at a distance of about 1.5 kilometers near Seemakonda hillock.
The request of the community is genuine and has thus been recommended for the Gravity Fed Water Supply System as it is an appropriate solution to solve the drinking problem of the village for the present and future generations. The community has also agreed upon handling the maintenance part by saving some portion of their earnings and contributing towards the repairs of the system.
