Water is taken from a spring, rather than the river, to reduce the risk of contamination by parasites and other pernicious micro-organisms. A tank is built at the spring to ensure a continuous head of water above the start of the mainline. Thus, the mainline should always run full without any air locks.This tank is cast from conctret and consists of a sedimentation area and a 380 liter tank.
