Abstract: Lack of foreign money, ill conceived and undefined levels of service, adverse global economies of the 80's and embezzlement of funds and dishonesty on the part of the implemen­ting authorities are but a few of the snags that hindered implementation of a resolution by the ruling party; then TANU, of 1971 which stipulated water for all Tanzanians by 1991 within a distance of short walk, defined as 400 m. A government sponsored project to investigate on use of locally available materials; wood and bamboo as water conduits was started by T.N. Lipangile in 1974. Results of this research and their possible impact in the implementation of the rural water supply programme are discussed in this paper.
