The soil structure that is rocky causes the people difficult to dig the groundwater to fulfil their clean water needs. The flow of PDAM service cannot be used by the people because the location is far from the center of water flow. Daily, the people use the water from the water springs of Paras River that is located under Dusun Brige’en directly or binging it with water container.
