Key Messages
  • Ensure your drinking water is safe by getting your water tested at regular intervals by trained people. A field testing kit is with the Panchayats and they know who these trained people are.

  • If your drinking water is not clean, you must take immediate action to avoid serious illnesses by doing the following:

    1. If there is chemical contamination, you must change your water source and seek assistance from the Panchayat to expedite the matter.

    2. If there is biological contamination you can easily purify it by boiling it or treating with Halogen tablets available from SC, or chlorination.

  • Unhygienic handling of water during transportation or while storing within your home can contaminate previously safe water. You can protect collected water against recontamination by:

    1. Storing it in clean containers with narrow openings.

    2. By keeping it covered at all times.

    3. Using a ladle for taking out water.

    4. Not allowing anyone to put their fingers or hands into the container.

    5. Not allowing anyone to drink directly from it.

    6. Having a dispensing device such as a tap or spout.

    7. You should also store the drinking water on a raised platform.
