Due to passiveness of community, water scheme was not functioning well. There were no proper uses of water system components. Components conditions were going worst day by day. People need to go far for fetching water. Water sources were not safe at all. Often female and girls were their major responsibility for water fetching. People were frustrated with the worst condition of water scheme and less concerned about it.
