How much water do I need for a village pump?

This very much depends on the amount of people (and animals) dependent on the pump. Generally speaking, you can calculate with the following numbers in case of a central water pump:

  • 20 – 50 liters / day per person
  • 30 – 150 liters / day per cow (depends very much on whether they are producing milk or not)
  • 5 – 10 liters / day per goat or sheep
