A community or group of communities served by an efficient water system benefits from the following:
Improved health and sanitation. Water users are provided with a first line of defense against water-borne diseases since only disinfected and potable water is made available to every water consumerís home.
Better standard of living. A waterdistrict frees water consumers from the time- and effort-consuming chore of fetching water from unsafe community wells. With more time on their hands, water users are able to pursue productive endeavors or engage in leisurely activities.
Fire protection. The community is provided with a reliable fire-fighting capability.
A helping hand during inopportune times. Since a WD is community-based and service-oriented, it becomes communityís reliable partners during social activities or, more importantly, during calamities.
More economic opportunities. An efficient water system in a community attracts more investors and stimulates commercial activities.
Additional jobs and better economic opportunities become available to residents.
Higher land values. The price of real estate properties in a community increases once a Level III (individual household connection) water system becomes accessible.
