About Nepal Project.
There is a need for an emergency water supply system for residents in the Terai region of Nepal who are affected by flooding every year. The people in the proposed project area (Sunsari, Nepal) who are living close to the river are forced to abandon their houses and move to higher locations on temporary shelter to be safe from flood during monsoon. This is a repetitive problem as the monsoon season is a period of nearly 3 months following the summer. During the time in the temporary shelter and immediately after returning back to their original home after the flood has receded, the people face the scarcity of clean drinking water as the major source of water (groundwater/tube well) is contaminated due to flood inundation. This project recognizes the problem and aims on addressing it by constructing an elevated tank on the area which will be the only source of freshwater during monsoon season and immediately after the monsoon season.
