Did you know that access to safe water is a human right as per UN guidelines? Unfortunately little attention is being given to such a fundamental concept if we were to compare with how the public reacts to for example political matters. With water, one can drill a borehole that is producing salty water, mud or even a borehole that is not producing water at all.  Which  simply implies that water quality assessments were poorly conducted. Unlike someone who tampers with say tax payers money, the borehole driller can easily get away with it making a whole community victims of his/her negligence.

The video below depicts one of the many cases out there in our society.
