Some wells have water with high amounts of iron and others have an organic/earthen smell. To remove the iron or smell, a simple iron removal filter containing activated charcoal can be installed. These filters are locally manufactured. Total cost is approximately 10,000 INR, including Rs. 500/- for transport and Rs.1800/- for the hand pump. This filter removes iron, odour and also 70% manganese. The first such filter was installed at well PW195 on 25th May 2016. This bi-tech well was constructed in 2011. After one day of pumping and backwashing, 12 families started using the water for drinking and cooking .
