A water supply project that would pipe in water to individual residences for 81 villages from Myaing township, Pakokku district and Magwe region conducted by Rural Development Department and UNICEF will be completed in December, according to Myaing township Rural Development Department.
“Our Rural Development Department implemented this project jointly together with UNICEF. So far, the project has been completed in 59 villages. Another 22 villages still remain, said U Kyaw Min Tun from the Myaing township Rural Development Department.
For this project, UNICEF provided the pipelines and Myaing township Rural Development Department conducted the technical portion of the effort. “The village essentially needed the water well and dispensers. We conducted the project with the assistance of the local people,” he added. Having door-to-door water supply can solve the water shortage problems and the danger of fires in the summer, according to the local people.
“Previously, we used to go and get the water from the well. But, now we are using the water with our own meter,” said Ko Zaw Lwin Soe from Daung Oho Gyi village, Myaing township.
The door-to-door water supply project which was implemented in Paakokku district was a three-year project that started in 2014.
