Water is a precious natural resource vital for sustaining all life on the earth. Due to its multiple benefits and the problems created by its excesses, shortages and quality deterioration, water as a finite resource requires special attention. The study explores the accessibility, availability and utilization of water resources in the area. The study is purely qualitative using FGD, PRA and in-depth interview. The study findings revealed that accessing water is very difficult and costly and less available for domestic and other purposes, even though these depend with individual households and economic status of the households.
