MEEL BUT is one of those communities where there is no effective water supply infrastructure to service the water needs of its people. which has been further exacerbated by the disaster. Through the CRS emergency response. Almost 75% of the rural water systems before the earth quake were gravity schemes. Rural drinking water supply schemes in these areas are usually sourced from natural springs. This design and cost estimate has been prepared in order to provide the potable gravity-fed drinking water supply scheme for the earth quake affected people of MEEL BUT. Through assessment and emergency program evaluation. 2) provision of permanent sanitation facilities using a self-build approach. and increasing knowledge of appropriate hygiene practices. 3) rehabilitation of community water supply schemes utilizing local skilled and unskilled labor. they are looking to rebuild household and community-level infrastructure. rebuilding sanitation structures. aftershocks. and 29 communities have water supply schemes rehabilitated.4 RELATION OF PROJECT WITH UMBRELLA PROGRAM DOCUMENT/PLAN: Rehabilitation of water supply is part of a larger water and sanitation program being carried out in the Siran and Konch valley by CRS partners and CRS operational teams. adequate and durable shelter. streams and rivers and. In most cases existing water infrastructures have been completely destroyed by the earthquake. While families enter into the reconstruction phase of the emergency. A key project strategy is to enable affected households to reduce risk of hygiene-related disease by rehabilitating community water supply. This water and sanitation project will focus on five major areas: 1) mapping out permanent house and sanitation facility sites. through dug wells and tube wells.P. 50% of villages have received emergency sanitation facilities.earth quake disaster has significantly affected the water and sanitation sector in Siran valley of district Mansehra along with the other districts of N-W. through a lesser extent.F. and 5) providing cash-forwork opportunities to skilled and unskilled labor within the community as well as households for reconstructing sanitation facilities and water supply schemes. households in 100+ villages of Siran and Kontch Valley have received safe. Most of these water supply networks were in a poor condition. 4) providing health and hygiene training for women and children.

informed by CRS’ Integral Human Development conceptual framework. 7 .5 PRE.1 Taking into account the existing livelihood strategies. on self help basis. CRS’ IHD conceptual framework was developed by CRS under an Institutional Capacity Building grant from USAID. TMA constructed a water supply scheme in 1981-82 but due to some reasons. 1. The main supply line was completely destroyed hence cutting off the water supply for the community. the CRS project strategy intends to help restore individual household assets and secure community assets to allow livelihoods recovery and future growth to take place. The project seeks to contribute to increased social assets by strengthening community groups’ capacity to address common needs as well as identify and act to reduce vulnerabilities to adverse shocks and disasters. most parts of the community could not be provided with the distribution networks and was left un-serviced.1. and disaster risks. The proposed strategy takes a holistic approach to recovery and rehabilitation.6 POST. Community.EARTH QUAKE FACILITIES FOR DRINKING WATER Before the earth quake. the institutional and policy environment. 1.EARTH QUAKE/PRESENT SET UP FOR DRINKING WATER The earth quake engraved its impact on existing water set up of MEEL BUT. the local economy. So the people have to go to the spring and fetch water manually for both the domestic and productive water supply needs of households and the community. there was no efficient water supply scheme to serve the water needs of entire MEEL BUT community. the project proposes to increase livelihood related human assets – strengthening knowledge 1 Adapted from the Sustainable Livelihood framework promoted by DfID and others. The scheme was in a poor condition even before the earth quake due to no proper maintenance and negligence and the water needs of people were not satisfied.7 RELATION OF PROJECT WITH CRS OVER ALL PROGRAM Rehabilitation of community infrastructure such as drinking water supply is part of a larger overall CRS strategy for the earthquake region. arranged some PVC pipes to restore the supply but it is not working well for them. In addition. Most of the nearby springs sources initially used for water supply have either dried up or their discharge have become too low to fulfill the increasing demands of growing MEEL BUT population. which are at a greater distance from their houses. best known to the-then TMA. As a result people have to look for some new springs.

involving community contribution of minimum 15% of total cost of project. The main objective of the project is to ensure sustainable drinking water supply to the population in required quantity and good quality. Construction of Main storage tank of 6000 Gal (US) capacity with seismic resistance being incorporated in. As per detailed survey. Catchment Chamber of 4’x4’x3’ (internal dimensions) 3. Rehabilitation of drinking water supply will contribute towards restoration of community assets. Laying/installation of 2240 Rft long supply main of 1“ diameter up to Main storage tank. Laying/ installation of one main distribution lines 2520 Rft long of 3/4” diameter. and will allow families to continue recovery of their livelihoods and encourage future growth of the community.

The detailed survey/assessment was then carried out by the CRS Field Engineers on 27 July 2006 in the presence of the Water Management Committee. 1.and skills on safe construction. After the pre-feasibility studies. 7. erosion prevention and increased savings. 5. Providing secondary branch lines emerging out from main distribution lines 2200 Rft long of 1/2“ diameter.8 SUMMARY AND SCOPE OF PROJECT The project is planned on need-based participatory approach. a Water Management Committee of the community was formed by involving all community members. 2. the following are the major components of the project that would be carried out in accordance with the approved designs and estimates. An Initial Assessment was conducted in the community in order to check feasibility of the project in prevailing circumstances.

In addition to this. from detailed survey to the end of project implementation. CRS staff will form a community water committee that will later on join the community village development committee. for example. cement. community would share a minimum of 15% of total project cost as a must. and water supply management skills. Community will provide its 15% share in any of the following potential areas.2 COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION AND CONTRIBUTION Community involvement in a project is an important way for people to become aware of and select solutions to their own problems. the project has been properly planned. stones. gravel. It is important that a community itself believes in the improved water supply system.3 ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL CONSIDERATIONS Projects of rural water supply schemes like this for MEEL BUT generally comprise small scale infrastructures which normally do not have any significant negative environmental or social impacts. 10 physical.
