Additional 45m transported
After getting the information about the additional 45m of pipe needed to complete the required length of the penstock, Nepal Poly Pipe immediately got the 7 pieces of pipe ready. Mr.Shyam Lama came to Kathmandu right away to pick them up and transported it to the village. Although on our side it was only making a few phone calls to Nepal Poly Pipe and coordinating between them and Mr. Shyam Lama, the eagerness and interest of the villagers made it possible to get the pipe transported within 24 hours. At the beginning we were very worried because transporting the pipe could be a big problem. After spending on the peltric set and especially the pipes we couldn't afford to spend more money on renting a truck and a driver to transport just those 7 pieces of pipe. However, now, the penstock is officially 465m long and all the required amount of pipe is at the village ready to be connected so we can move on to the next phase of construction.
