5.5.2 Environmental factors

Environmental factors affecting water facilities include water scarcity, which can result in wells drying up and is more likely if the wells were originally constructed during the rainy season (Addis, 2012). If this is due to poor site selection, the success of future water supply projects could be improved with proper hydrogeological surveys and by involving local people in the selection of sites. This may be older people, as you read in the story of Bayu in Case Study 5.1, and women because they know the water sources in their locality.
