Tubewell  Platform  construction  at  community    

Situation  Analysis:  
As  per  community  situation  analysis,  most  of  the  Arsenic  
free   Tubewell   have   no   platform.   As   a   result   there   is   a  
huge   chance   for   bacterial   contamination   in   the   tube   well.  
In   Every   ward,   CBO   developed   an   action   plan   for  
improving  the  safe  water  sources.    
Initiative  Taken:  
AMRF  is  working  with  the  community  people  by  forming  
CBO   in   every   ward   of   Union   Parishad.   With   this  
consistence   CBO   representatives   visited   the   tube-­‐wells  
site   as   per   community   demand.   Through   their   visit   if   they  
felt  it  needed  to  construct  platform  for  improving  quality  
of  water,  subsequently  they  decided  to  apply  to  AMRF  for  
the  construction  of  platform.    
 
Construction  Process:  
• Application:  Every   CBO  chairmen  have  applied  to  
AMRF   on   behalf   of   community   people   for   the   construction   of   platform   with   the  
appropriate  prescribed  format.    
• Approval:   Based   on   CBO’s   application   union  
supervisor   and   project   engineer   visited   the   tube-­‐
well   site,   then   union   supervisor   recommended  
construction   those   platform.   On   the   other   hand  
engineer   recommended   that   there   are   no  
technical  obligations  to  construct  the  platform.  
• Contribution   money:   According   to   WAB   cost  
sharing  strategy  CBO  decided  to  take  cost  sharing  
money  approximate  8%  of  of  total  construction  of  
every  single  platform  as  per  wellbeing  ranking.    
• Contractor/Masson   Selection:   Selection   of  
contractor  as  per  organizational  financial  policy.  
• Construction   work:  Construction  work  has  started  
as   priority   basis.   Both   of   CBO   and   Engineer  
 
monitor   the   construction   work   for   ensuring   the  
quality  of  materials  and  construction  work.  

Handover:   After   the   completion   of  
construction   work   AMRF   handed  
over   the   platform   to   CBO   for   using  
water  facilities    

Covered   Population:     In   the   last   WAB  
financial   year   (   April   2014   to   March   2015)
