Clean, uncontaminated water is a huge problem for many villages. Surface runoff often finds its way into many of the shallow wells, making them unusable for drinking water. This particular problem is compounded because most wells aren’t sealed. I’ve been told many times how snakes or rats have periodically fallen in and died in the water. Without a way to remove the poison far below, the well is written off and closed down.
