WHAT IT SHOWS: Some villages in the colliery belts of Salanpur face drinking water crisis throughout the year. In summer the situations gets even worse. Due to its close proximity to the coal mines either the water underground is dry or not suitable for consumption. Water trucks are arranged by the Salanpur BDO office which visit these villages to provide water just 2 days a week. Villagers collect waters from the water tankers.
