Local women said that they were compelled to fetch water from far away places carrying water pot on doko, a traditional bamboo basket until a few days ago.

With the completion of the project, locals of Pidagaun, Dovane, Jogibisauna, Kurlechaur, Dandatole, Bhimsensthan among other settlements are now facilitated with drinking water supply.

Local Parvati Sunar expressed her pleasure, "People have now gained easy access to clean drinking water in comparison to the previous state when they were compelled to drink murky water from rivers or rivulets which are far from the settlement and it used to take a long time to bring water owing to the geographical constraints".
