Arsenic Mitigation Water Supply Project

PRISM implemented the screening and mitigation activities and community mobilization program in Jhalakathi Sadar Thana of Jhalakathi District to supply arsenic free drinking water under Bangladesh Arsenic Mitigation Water Supply Project (BAMWSP). Water samples were collected from all the installed tube wells and was tested using Arsenic Field Test Kits. In addition, some other metals such as Chlorides, Irons, and Manganese were also tested in the PRISM’s lab. Consequently the community development, mobilization and execution activities have also been carried out in the same area. Now, the people of the affected area are getting safe drinking water as the project has installed different types of arsenic free water supply arrangement.
