WHAT PEOPLE NEED: water for drinking, cooking, washing, sanitation, crops, livestock, fisheries, gardens, small-scale enterprises..
BUT ARE THEY GETTING IT? In most communities the systems in place have been designed for just one type of use: domestic or irrigation
MUS WORKS: Multiple-Use Water Services (MUS) is a participatory approach that ensures people have the water they need for healthy, productive lives.
CONSEQUENCES OF A SINGLE-USE SERVICE: illegal connections, destruction of pipes, pumps or canal access; unsafe drinking water; exceeding the limits of the system.
