online resource
posted on 12.02.2018, 15:11 by Brian Reed
This guide examines the range of domestic water containers commonly found in low-income countries and explores the role that water containers have in ensuring that household water supplies are adequate and safe. It also explains why planning for a water supply system should not end at the public tap or village well but extend to the place where the water is used. Understanding the ways in which people use water containers and designing the supply system to take account of this will help engineers to provide a better and safer service.
