Folks of Gaindakot municiplaity-3, Dhodeni located in accessible Nawalprasi (Bardaghat-Susta-East) have long been compelled to fetch drinking water from a distant rivulet. The residents here have to climb up two hours to fetch a jar of water from a rivulet. Generally, the local people moved to the rivulet early in the morning and returned with a jar of water in the afternoon. Saraswoiti Acharya, a local, said there has always been a problem of drinking water in the area. 'The folks of Dhodeni have been facing an acute problem of drinking water. One has to fetch a jar containing 20 liters of water from a distant rivulet', the 40-year-old Acharya added. 'All houses here have been installed with a drinking water meter, but there is no water supply', she said, adding, 'One has to spend the whole day fetching limited water quantities'. The Dhodeni folks are being compelled to drink impure water from the Lahara rivulet in lack of tap water supply. The rivulet is around a kilometer away from Dhodeni having 150 households.
