Clear water reflects the bright sky on Monday (23/10) at Margo Tirto dam in Gisting Bawah village, Gisting district, Tanggamus regency, Lampung. The dam has been turned into a tourist attraction by the Mandiri Bersatu village enterprise. The springs around the dam is used to supply clean water to villagers.

Before 2015, the villagers of Gisting Bawah in Gisting district, Tanggamus regency, Lampung, had to fetch their water from Margo Tirto Spring, about 1.5 kilometers away. Thanks to a village-owned enterprise, all can now enjoy the blessings of the spring supplied directly to their homes.

It was just before dusk on Monday (23/10) when Daryati, 40, filled the tank with water flowing from a PVC pipe in her house. She also filled three large buckets for the toilet and washing dishes.
