This solution for water gives some technical aspects of a wire mesh cistern developed by a non-governmental organization in the rural area of semiarid Brazil. For the success of rainwater catchment systems for household use, it is essential to have available technologies that bring together simplicity of construction, high resistance and low cost: three factors that seem difficult to get under one roof. The self standing wire mesh cistern, which uses a ferro-cement technology, corresponds to these three requirements.

A study in Kerala conducted by the Kerala Pollution Control Board in association with the SEU on the bacteriological quality of dug wells in Kerala observed that “water in none of the open dug wells investigated is of drinking water quality standards” as prescribed by Bureau of India Standard. Since Kerala is the only place in the world having highest density of open dug well (250 per sq.km) and 50% of population used this as the only source of water for drinking. In this situation, the Government of Kerala along with other stakeholders including NGOs, take stock of the situation in order to mitigate the acute shortage of drinking water.
