Among so many problems drinking water problem is most important and people of sankhu are very much keen interested upon the problem of drinking water. As drinking clean and hygene water is necesity of people who live sankhu and surrounding. In ancient time there was enough well  to drink water. But time changed so there is low water level in sankhu area one hand,  in other hand population incresement is also major reason of lack of water.
Modernization and education made conscious level high. So most of people of sankhu knew how to use water in home in different purposes. So to live healthy life water is really important.  Beside wells people of sankhu were using tap water from few decades. That source of water was made by Leder Ganesh Man Singh. So no need to say that was really old. So that was intended to people of sankhu 60 years before. At that time that water is not enough to people of sankhu.
