Abstract

This project aided the Population and Community Development Association to address the water quality and quantity problems of two villages, Baan Tha Thong Lang and Baan Tha Lane in Krabi, Thailand. Our team observed the water systems, surveyed villagers, interviewed experts, and conducted water tests for non-drinking standards of the water supplied by both systems. Our results indicated that the water in one well of Baan Tha Thong Lang exhibits high levels of hardness while the water system in Baan Tha Lane does not provide enough water to the village. We recommended that if the PDA has the funding to install a 170,000B chemical precipitation system in Baan Tha Thong Lang and dig a 1,125,000B well in Baan Tha Lane, it will greatly improve the quality of life for over 600 rural villagers.
