The source should be close enough to the community for people to get water easily.
To keep drinking and cooking water clean:
- do not let animals go near the water source. If necessary, build a fence to keep them out.
- do not bathe, or wash clothes, cooking pots, or eating utensils near the water source.
- do not pass stool or throw garbage (rubbish) near the water source.
