Drinking Water Supply- a Precondition of good Health
Clean drinking water is not for granted even in such a water-rich country like Nepal.
Sherpa school now has its own water well, which is edged and provides sufficient water. The incoming water at school is cleaned by sand filters, but we aren’t yet satisfied with the quality.
Continuously drawn samples turn out varying degrees of germst.
First reason: the source lies in the catchment area of agriculture with livestock.
Second reason: backwashing of sand filters is not carried out regularly and conscientiously.
Although the immune system of Nepalese students is more resistant than ours, we woud like to improve the quality of drinking water.
