The living in joint family system. According to

The
survey on knowledge and practices regarding safe drinking water was conducted
at rural area (Ghara Tajak) of district Peshawar. A total of 100 participants
(age 13 to 65) with the mean age of 35.20 years with standard deviation of
13.02 years were interviewed, of which (62%) are male and (38 %.) were female.
When we analyzed our data most of the people (70%) living in joint family
system. According to National Family Health survey III (2005-06) access to
water is difficult especially in rural areas. It also estimated that only 25%
of households in India had private water supply facility, 18% used public water
supply and 43% used tube wells while this study exposed that 94.00% of
participants uses bore well/hand pump 5% used community well and rest of them
1% used public tap water.

Kaniambady, Dinesh Peraje Vasu, (2017) at KVG Medical College &
Hospital, Sullia, Karnataka, India conducted a cross sectional which show that
76.92% of the households boiled water prior to consumption, 5.76% of the
households boil the water first followed by filtering the water by candle
filters, 2.69% of the households used either water filter/ water purifier,
14.23% of the households did not use any water treatment methods before
consumption. Our study exposed that which shows that 10% boil the water to make
it safe 5% people add chlorine 17% sieve it through cloth to make the water
capable for drinking but a large number of people (68%) of that community do
nothing to make it safe. All these belonged to lower socio economic status and
it could lead to higher chances of water borne diseases among them.

of different variables which included in the study are distance between water
source and septic tank. The result shows that 22% were at 2 meter distance 26%
were at 3-4 meter while 36% were at distance of 5-6 meter and 16% were at more
than 6 meter. Frequency of cleaning the well the result shows that 20% clean
their well once a half year 19% once a year and the remaining 55% of the population
do not clean their well. Quality of water people use the result shows that

It is the task of all
nurses to include health promotional and health education activities into their
professional roles. Water management practices and feature judgment in most of
the households were not satisfactory in the present study. As most of the
people in study area were unaware of the close up connection between unsafe
drinking water and diarrhea, thus showing an urgent need of health education in
this area. The United Nations has recognized access to water as a basic human
right, stating that water is a social and cultural good, not merely an economic
commodity. Provision of safe drinking water is one of the eight elements of
primary health care to achieve goal of health. Treatment of chemically and
biologically contaminated water sources in rural areas should be done by
appropriate technologies for provision of safe potable water; Community participation
is required to create awareness regarding safe water practices
