Kathmandu, Nepal Drinking Water Needs

More than half of Nepalis are reported to live below the international poverty line of $1.25 USD per day. Consequently, they have very few alternatives for obtaining drinking water and must wait days for water service then have it only for an hour or so. Or they must walk long distances to a working public faucet each day to obtain water.
