The people of Jorapokhar, Dokatta, Kondwa and Rajanka villages of Jhinkpani Town, West Singhbhum District of Jharkhand did not have direct access to clean drinking water. The ACC TRUST team at Chaibasa visited the villages and conducted surveys, which revealed that scarcity of clean water was a major problem for the villagers. Therefore, ACC TRUST decided that providing clean drinking water for all would be one of their key focus areas.
ACC TRUST stepped forward to provide theses villagers with clean water by installing six hand pumps, four water tanks, and a pipeline providing drinking water to 4,441 people. Each water tank has a capacity of 2,000 litres of water, having five connections via pipelines to deliver clean drinking water to nearby households. The water tanks ACC TRUST installed are fully automatic with water level detection sensors installed in them. When the water level falls below the threshold, the pump is switched on automatically to fill the tank to its capacity. The water tanks are environment friendly and work on electricity generated by solar panels installed on top of the tanks which is a renewable and clean source of energy.
