Sustainable Management Model for Springs Water in Remote Areas as an Effort to Fulfill Water Needs

The Pesiraman Manik Tirta Spring in Timuhun Village can potentially supply clean water. However, the main challenge lies in the lack of infrastructure to distribute water from the source to residents' homes. As a result, those seeking water must traverse steep terrain to reach the spring. To ensure a consistent water supply for Timuhun Village, a comprehensive management plan for the Pesiraman Manik Tirta spring region is essential. Sustaining the current water potential requires the implementation of an effective management approach. This research comprises a descriptive study that incorporates both quantitative and qualitative analyses. Microsoft Excel was utilized to assess quantitative data. A SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis was developed to address Timuhun Village's need for sustainable water management. This model has been adopted as the management framework for the village's Pesiraman Manik Tirta Springs model. This model can be successfully implemented by establishing cost-effective infrastructure, such as hydro pumps operating without electricity. Improved accessibility to clean water distribution infrastructure can significantly enhance the quality of life for residents, even in steep and remote areas.
