Neha Tambe Aug 03, 2022 0

The Drinking Water and Sanitation Department (DWSD), government of Jharkhand, proposed a water supply scheme at Khunti district. Large sections of Jharkhand do not have access to safe drinking water and sanitation. Sanitation coverage in rural areas is very low. Only about 30% of Jharkhand has access to partial facilities with potable drinking water. A large segment of the population in Jharkhand has no access to safe drinking water. This is because the primary water sources contain fluoride, arsenic and iron. State sanctioned government programs such as Accelerated Rural Water Supply Programme (ARWSP), Swajaldhara, and Total Sanitation Campaign launched in the past serve the rural population with water and sanitation related services.
