Shallow wells are obstruction structures which are constructed next to the sand dams to hold the naturally- sieved

and distilled water from the sand dam, which is eventually drawn out through the hand pump attached to the shallow well.Although a sand dam does not require a shallow well to be fully functional, the shallow well enable easier, convenient and highly sanitized abstraction of the water for human use.

Each of the sand dams is attached to one shallow well, and the local communities are well trained on simple repairs of the hand pump to address any eventuality of a possible break down.
