Small filtration facilities will be set up at some of the larger projects to supply potable water to beneficiaries. This is part of the Lands Area Water Supply Progamme (LAWS). Furthermore, a programme of rehabilitating and equipping hand-dug wells was also introduced in the mid 1980's. Through this programme the quality of water drawn from open wells has been improved and hand pumps have make it easy for farmers to draw water. DWA has since made it compulsory for all water development projects to be supported by independent Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Studies following the 1991 experience from the Southern Okavango integrated Water Development Project.
