Condition of Water Supply and Sanitation in Undaan Tengah village In Undaan Tengah only 30 percent of its population has latrines at home. Thus, it might be partly responsible for high rates of diarrheal disease and dengue fever. Currently, there is a high demand for improved sanitation facilities. Therefore, assistance in promotion and understanding of available and appropriate technologies is required. In terms of water supply, there is around 70 percent of Undaan Tengah households who have piped water connections from the local water utility (PDAM). The remaining households rely on shallow and borehole wells that have low quality water due to high turbidity, salinity and cross-contamination with septage caused by improper wastewater disposal. Despite high number of households that require piped water connection, they are severely inhibited from gaining one due to relatively high initial cost of connection installation. Thus the micro credit program, which is implemented under a partnership betweenTirta Makmur Cooperative, Water Utility of Kudus District and Bank Syariah Mandiri of Kudus offers the possibility of spreading the installation cost over a period of one to two years, represents a major source of support. IUWASH will continue working with Undaan Tengah in ‘water for the poor’ issues through the micro credit partnership and may expand its work to assistance in sanitation programming.
