4.3.1 Access to water for institutions
Schools and health institutions may get their water from a well or handpump or they may have piped water supply to taps. The general accessibility requirements of a wide, even path, no steps, and gently sloping ramp will be familiar to you by now. In addition, for institutional water facilities, there should be a sufficient number of taps for all the users and these should be installed at different heights to enable persons with physical disabilities and children to reach them. This will allow access for handwashing as well as for drinking and other water uses.
