Potable Water

Some of the people from the Menendez Zetino village in El Salvador are seen doing initial digging for the water pipes from the lake up the mountainside to their homes. Because of the water source being the lake, it was not necessary to hire heavy machinery to drill for water. Manual labor provided the necessary work.
