In 2011 a water tank was built. It supplies water to 1500 plus people in the village. The water is primarily used for personal needs like drinking, cooking and bathing. Those who previously did not have access to water are now able to grow gardens and provide water to animals for food. In the past the only water available was run-off from the mountain. Having clean spring water for drinking has improved the health of the people. The building materials were supplied by HTO and the villagers built it on their own. No one was paid. The people are completely responsible for the maintenance and repairs of the tank. The community is in charge of the distribution.
