It is the aim of the Government to provide standard water supply schemes for every community in the nation. However, for certain cases, the scheme could not be provided due to some technical problems such as too far from the main pipe line that make low water head, or financial problems that the users or communities would not be able to have such kinds of costly piping system. In this paper, five typical case examples of different locations in West Malaysia are presented. The appropiate technology that the community adopted in order to have adequate water supply is discussed. The water quality and appropiate treatment process are also given.
