Rural intakes and springs are small-scaled water supply projects aimed at providing water from river tributaries and springs for small communities of less than 500 people. These springs are usually located close to the community and are created to augment and improve water supply in the area.

At the completion of these projects by the end of 2018, 900 persons will see benefits from improved water supply.
