  2. To build a metal tank (size m3) on top of the agricultural land to provide water to irrigate the land around the hour and set up the appropriate system to operate the spray water to a larger area.
  3. To extend water lines from wells to distribution tanks to ensure water access from multiple sources to the farmers (the reservoir provides exports of water)
  4. To provide water lines from the distribution tank to the agricultural land, and to provide farmers with meters to adjust the amount of water used in agriculture.
