Problems encountered• Digging of trenches started a bit late due to extreme hot weather and again it was delayed due to prolonged rain during September/ October.• The connecting forest road & bridges to the sites were damaged due to heavy rain and thus transportation of pipes, got delayed till it was repaired by the forest dept.• In Sanatulubi village, the laying of pipes was to be done through paddy fields. So, we had to wait till harvest to start digging of trenches through the paddy field.
