"Handpumps continue to be the principal technology used to supply water to rural people in developing countries. This is because, in most cases, handpumps represent the most cost-effective option for supplying safe water to low-income small communities. Handpumps are environmentally friendly, relatively simple to operate, and manageable by the community itself." (Source: Rural Water Supply Network).
