Description
Near the village of Mayan, Iran, unidentified villagers are constructing a standpipe for a well, using reclaimed bricks and an old gasoline truck tank as a water reservoir. The shallow well was constructed with the assistance of the Point Four program and the Technical Cooperation Administration so that villagers would have a better source of clean water.
