Spring Cleaning : A Randomized Evaluation of Source Water Quality Improvement

  title={Spring Cleaning : A Randomized Evaluation of Source Water Quality Improvement},

Water-related diseases, particularly diarrhea in young children, kill two million people annually. To address this problem, donors and governments often provide infrastructure such as communal standpipes, wells, and protected springs in rural areas, where piping water into homes is infeasible.
