During household survey and PRA exercise it has been observed that drinking water of this village is much polluted. UBA IIT Delhi team has collected sample of drinking water and sent it to IIT Roorkee for laboratory test. Many of the toilets constructed in this village under Swachh Bharat Mission are not in use. UBA team is working on social behavioral change communication by educating villagers about maintaining personal and community hygiene and also to make the village open defecation free (ODF).
