Operation and Maintainence Manual for Rural Water Supplies

Operation and Maintenance (O & M) manual for rural water supplies was prepared and released by this Ministry in March, 2011. Thereafter suggestions were received from states to make it more practical and user friendly to field level enginerrs. The Twelfth Five Year Plan document has now laid emphasis on piped water supply at 55 ipcd with focus on household connections. With these developments in mind, it was decided to update this O & M Manual and make it more useful to field level engineers and panchayats.
