Clean Water Project
Installation of Infrastructure for Clean Water

Since 1999 up to now, in cooperation with LDSC (Latter Day Saint Charities), clean water projects have been implemented in several sub-districts (kecamatan) in Kabupaten Bogor (West area) and Kabupaten Sukabumi

Construction Process
The aid provided is construction materials
Except : river sand, stone, wood and bamboo that can be provided by the community itself.
The construction works done by the community with instructions from the Technical Supervisor.
The water installation is owned by the community. The community forms a management board that is responsible for the infrastructure- maintenance and the water management.

1. Purpose
Mission : to improve the community’s quality of life
Purpose : to improve the community’s health
Activity : to flow clean water from the source
(located at the upper course of river), to the settlement

Expected result : villagers can meet their daily need of clean water such as for drinking, washing, etc.

2. Basic Consideration

– Villagers suffer skin diseases and diarrhea from using unclean water
– Clean water provided by the government does not reach villages
– Many children need better future
– The very long distance from the dam and the settlement
– The drastic difference in height and mountainous
– The length of the pipeline from 5 km to 200 km

Clean water is essential for health, especially for children in the future. The community can use
clean water to meet their basic need, because the water available in not enough and the
condition is not clean and polluted.

Providing clean water to meet villagers basic need such as for drinking and washing.

With instructions from a Technical Supervisor, the community do communal work to :
• Construct dam … * Reservoir tank
• Install pipe-line … * Distribution tank

– The finishing of the whole work of the clean water to installation.
– Clean water can be used by the whole community.
– The reduction of diseases because of the polluted water.
– The community’s sense-belonging upon the clan water installation they have worked on.
– The community enjoy healthy life for the sake of better life.

3. Implementation Process

A. Villagers submit application of support for clean water

B. Observation over location and preliminary survey
1. Survey over area and location
2. Survey over the water source
3. Survey over the line

C. Submit project application based on the result of the survey
1. Documentation on the Existing clean water shortage
– Lack of water because there is no water source around the settlement
– Usage of the polluted water/waste water from the rice field/waste water from households to meet the daily need
– Limited water that it is possible to dry out in the dry season
– Many suffer diseases because using unclean water

2. Feasibility of the water source
– Unpolluted spring or river (the water source is not household waste or from the rice field or other waste)
– The water is clear and pure (colorless, tasteless, does not smell or contained dangerous substances)
– Sufficient Debit air to cover the whole community, either for daily need or other purposes such as to water the rice field)

3. Mapping the Area and the Installation line
– Data of the area and the number of households need clean water
– Diagram of the line, length of the pipeline, number of main tanks and distribution tanks
– Formulation of the water volume and the size of pipeline

D. Implementation
1. Socialization and common agreement
– Socialization to the local government officers (Camat, Kepala Desa, BPD, RT/ RW )
– Socialization to the community figures (religion groups, youth, hamlet chiefs, etc)
– Socialization to the community
– Common agreement (schedule, readiness and contribution of the community)

2. Forming the project committee and management board
Consist of :
1. local government officers (Protection and Guidance)
2. Community figures (Advisor and Board Supervision)
3. Chief of neighborhood unit (Coordinate communal work)
4. Community (Implementor)

3. Plotting the Location Determine the spots of : – water source and dam
– Central Tank
– Area Tank
– Distribution tank

4. Installation By using systems:
– Open (pipe-line for area where the settlement concentrated in one location)
– Closed (pipe-line for area where the settlement is scattered in several locations)

E. Handing over to the people

In cooperation with LDSC (Latter Day Saint Charities)
Projects have been implemented:

Tasks of the Technical Supervisors

A. Construction Preparation Phase
1. Survey
2. Formulation and Analysis
3. Planning and Scheduling the Activities

B. Social Preparation
1. Information and Announcement
2. Socialization and Technical Discussion
3. Scheduling the Implementation
4. Coordinate the works

C. Implementation Phase
1. Technical Instruction
2. Technical Supervision
3. Try out and Installation Setting

A. Construction Planning Phase

1. Survey (Observation, Collecting Data, Measuring)
• Survey of the area and location for developing proposal covers
– Typical of the settlement area (concentrated/scattered)
– Population group (RT/RW/area group) and the number of households
– Measure the difference of heights among locations within the area

• Survey the water source going to flow covers
– Water worthiness (not absorption from rice field or household waste)
– Water availability (not dry out in the dry season)
– Water rate of flow (enough supply)
– Plotting the position of the dam (minimize the risk of the change of the nature)
– Dam measurement (height/elevation, width, depth)

• Survey the track of the pipe-line and the installation covers
– Plotting the track (regular/significant up/down)
– Plotting the position of the central, area and distribution tanks (based on the difference in height and the population group)
– Measurement the length of the track (from the dam to the distribution tanks)

2. Formulation and Analysis (needs and system)
• Dam construction
– Technical construction (position, natural risk and construction time table)
– Materials needed (shape and size)

• The track and installation of pipe-line covers
– the track and pipe-line installation (the length of the track, natural risk and construction time-table)
– Installation technical (open/closed)
– Formulation of the size of pipes needed and other construction materials

• Water tank construction

3. Planning and time table for the whole area

B. Social Preparation Phase

1. Information and notification (preparation for area implementation)
• Formal and informal notification to
– Local government leaders (Camat, Kepala Desa, RT/RW )
– Community figures (religion figures, youth, etc)
– Community members
• Status and condition of the location spots

2. Socialization and Technical Discussion covers
– Socialization to local government officers, community figures and all of the community members
– Forming the project committee and the board
– Explain the technical works
– Time table for communal work

3. Construction Material Preparation covers
– Storage warehouses (central warehouse, area warehouses)
– Schedule to drop pipes (to the area warehouses)
– Collection material contributed by the community members (stone, sand, bamboo)
– Schedule for communal work

4. Time table of the Implementation

C. Implementation Phase:

1. Technical Instruction (during the construction work)
• Construction and Installation works must consider
– Safety (minimize the natural risk)
– Strength and durability (minimum maintenance)
– Stability and fluency (minimize the obstacles)

2. Technical supervision (during the construction work)
• Construction and installation work must consider
– Stability of the rate of water and its running
– Installing pipe-line and reservoir tank
– Setting water distribution

3. Try out and installation setting (after the installation finished)
• Reinstall and Finishing

There are still many poor people in the remote areas that need clean water
They are ready to work together and they have source of clean water
With the availability of clean water they can improve their economy and quality of life
