Supply of Domestic Water, Kangpokpi, Manipur

Abstract

The present study aims to survey and map the types of domestic water in Kangpokpi town of Manipur, India. It also aims to investigate the supply and availability of domestic water at the household level to find out water shortage or scarcity. The study is based on field work and secondary data collected from various sources. In the study it has been found that water is available in good amount though there are shortcomings in the methods of distribution and the poverty of the people to have the buying capacity. The inability of the PHED in supplying full scale water to the town as a whole can be rooted to social factors such as insurgency. If the anthropogenic activities are not stopped there will certainly be dwindling of the volume of water in the near future.
