Lamatar Community of Lubhu, Lalitpur was severely suffering due to highly contaminated water and there was a screaming need of proper water treatment systems for clean drinking water, so Oxfam Nepal developed a project to mitigate the water problem of this community. With this regard, on August 2016, Oxfam Nepal granted consultancy service to ENPHO (Environment and Public Health Organization) and ENPHO therefore chose Best Paani as its implementation partner to install bio-sand filtration systems to treat the contaminated water of the community. Best Paani distributed bio-sand filters in 58 households of Lamatar, Lubhu with the financial support of ENPHO. These systems are now serving approximately 500 people of the project areas. Here is the story of one of the households where Oxfam, ENPHO and Best Paani together have impacted through the project.
Best Paani was featured at Republica on August 9, 2018, Thursday. Best Paani founders Sajal Pradhan and Gokul Dangal have given their insights on what they have been doing to address water scarcity problem of Nepal with their water work services. Please go through this article for more details.
Best Paani recently completed installation of rainwater harvesting and groundwater recharge systems at Police Club of Jawalakhel, Lalitpur with the financial support of Kathmandu Valley Water Supply Management Board (KVWSMB). On 22nd July 2018, Best Paani CTO, Mr. Gokul Dangal, and KVWSMB representative, Mr. Rupesh Thakur, were invited for giving post installation presentation at the Club. The installed groundwater recharge system has the capacity of recharging approximately 73,00,000 liters of water from the compound of the Club annually and the rainwater harvesting system will now serve clean water for approximately 1,500 users of the Club.
Best Paani recently installed bio-sand filtration system in Mangalchhen Barrack (Bhawani Dal) at Achham. Initially the barrack was suffering from severe water problem. Though water was sufficient it was not suitable to drink without treatment. All the people of the barrack had been consuming bacteria infested water and now after the installation of this system, all the users have access to clean drinking water. The system will now serve clean drinking water to all the 900 users of the barrack.
Best Paani is on the mission to install personal, commercial and industrial scale water systems by replacing the need of other water sources with rainwater harvesting, bio-sand filtration and groundwater recharge systems for sustainable water consumption. Here is what best paani founders Sajal Pradhan and Gokul Dangal say about their business. About Best Paani

Demand for processed water supply is increasing due to increasing population. Sustainable use of water could maintain a balance between its demand and supply and rainwater harvesting is the most sustainable method which could be used for potable or non potable purposes either in commercial buildings or residential areas.
