Clean drinking water can help prevent diarrhea and parasites. The source should be close enough to the community for people to get water easily.

To keep drinking and cooking water clean:

  • do not let animals go near the water source. If necessary, build a fence to keep them out.
  • do not bathe, or wash clothes, cooking pots, or eating utensils near the water source.
  • do not pass stool or throw garbage (rubbish) near the water source.
