BANDUNG - Residents of Sinarsari Village begin to feel benefits of the clean water supply after RZ (Rumah Zakat) inaugurated the Water Well in Sinarsari Village, Dramaga sub-district of Bogor.
According to Sopian, a volunteer of RZ Inspiration in Bogor, the clean water provision and wells drilling were built to help the local residents that have a limited access to get clean water.
"In that area, not all local residents have wells due to the geographical location. As a result, when the residents needed water, they had to go down to the local fountain in the river and they had to walk through a steep and dangerous road," he said.
Sopian said that the budget for the construction of the Water Well facilities in Sirnasari Village was fully funded by the benefactors of RZ.
"The construction process of the water supply was started from December 2017 to January 2017. Then, it was just inaugurated on this Monday, " Sopian said through the information officially received by www.jabarprov.go.id on Monday (2/13).
The construction of the water supply included 2 toilets, one bathroom, and one room for wudhu (ablution). Also, a well was drilled into spring water as deep as 28 meters. The public facilities can be used by 50 families (KK) or about 200 people there.
Meanwhile, Latif as the Head of Sinarsari Village said that the village appreciates the help from the benefactors, so that the construction of the Water Well can fulfil the local residents' needs for clean water.
"In the future, the maintenance costs will be collected from the local residents' donations that use the Water Well," he said. (Parno)
