Khinthong and his group, along with other villagers, participated in a village meeting. At the meeting, Khinthong was excited to learn that the filter was available on an affordable payment plan. The meeting participants also discussed the costs of treating local water with charcoal and firewood. The participants even discussed the cost of buying bottled water. The water filter Khinthong and his group purchased is guaranteed for 4 years but is known to function for up to 5 years.
