    Machhegaon- Bracing an uncertain future

    • by  Karmath Subedi
    • "There was no problem of water till a decade back. We used to have a spring fed pond which supplied water to all the villages. We grew up with that pond, but now seeing it completely dry is very painful"- Dev Kumar Desar, 45 years old, recalls his memory. Dev’s village Machhegaun, now newly declared a municipality, is just 4 kilometers away from the ring road which surrounds Kathmandu. Machhegaun got its name from a famous temple of Machhe Narayan (first reincarnation of Lord Bishnu) standing in the middle of the same pond. Every 3 years, as per the lunar calendar, there is a festival to worship the first incarnation of Lord Bishnu. Thousands of people from Kathmandu Valley and nearby locations attend the month-long fanfare. But now, number of pilgrims has reduced significantly as there in no water in the pond. Dev Kumar Desar along with many others has a dream of reviving the pond. Beside its holy connection, this pond used to supply water to whole villages. Using the pond as source, a piped water system was constructed. Community standposts were constructed throughout the village to supply water to the end-user. These taps supplied water for 24 hours. This water was not only used for drinking and household purposes but was also used for kitchen gardening and cattle feeding. After the pond dried up, Machhegaun villagers have now dug two bore holes, around 2 km away from the pond. Water supply system is upgraded from public supply to private connections in every household. Two bore holes in Machhegaon extract up to 300,000 litres water per day, which is stored in two concrete tanks. Water is supplied for one hour in every alternate day. Every tap is connected to a meter, and a tariff has been fixed as per usage. But only one hour of water supply, every alternate day, seems to be insufficient for most of the large families. Since it is an old village, some of the households have problems storing water and transporting it water every time for various uses. Moreover, water is supplied between 7-8 am, which is the time when most of the women are busy in the kitchen. This has caused a serious problem for many households. Machhegaon is a microcosm for Nepal’s increasing urbanization and growing aspiration. The outskirt of the village is growing rapidly. New houses are being constructed and water demand is increasing steadily. Currently there are around 850 household connections, but the numbers are going to increase substantively in the coming days. Water and Sanitation Management Committee has a plan of constructing more bore holes to extracting more ground water in future. However, no hydrological study regarding the aquifers and its sustainability has been conducted yet. The villagers feel that they can continually extract ground water with the help of bore holes and their problems can be solved easily. Few people believe that the water supply situation is much better now compared to the past. Private household connections have improved their convenience but only enough to meet their drinking and specific household needs. Kitchen gardening and cattle rearing are difficult with this quantity of water. Villagers hope someday the pond will somehow revive itself again and they will have sufficient water for all their needs.
