Location and justification of the Scheme

To provide safe and adequate drinking water supply to people in the Purulia District suffering from acute scarcity of potable water,  thereby improving health and quality of life in the district.In absence of piped water supply scheme with sustainable source in most of the areas of the district, people of the area depend mainly on deep masonry wells / hand tube wells. During summer most of the aforesaid sources are often dried up due to excessive lowering of ground water table rendering acute crisis of drinking water in the region. Percentage of total rural population covered by piped water supply scheme in the district is considerably  low  in comparison to that of the state average. Also percentage of fluoride affected population (as per census 2001) is 10.86 % .
