The water discharge can flow about 0.5 m3/hr. Households can be serviced by about 50 households with a total volume of 6 - 9 m3 per month. With such a large discharge, there are still many unserved households, pumps work all day, resulting in frequent burning of pumps. The use of dug well water leads to the quality of the water in doubt. The low technology used to raise the water resulted in the expensive water that is Rp. 9,000, - /m3. An underground water survey has been conducted using Geolistrik Method, the result has been found aquifer. In the place has also been done drilling. Water sources are found at a depth of 18.5 m. After analyzing the quality of water, pursuant to Governor Regulation No. Bali. 8/2007 on Environmental Quality Standards and Raw Environmental Damage and Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality, WHO, Geneva, 1982, water quality is feasible for drinking water sources. The result of the analysis using Quality Water Index Calculator test showed that the well water of drill has 89 quality index with good category. Optimum discharge of well 65 m3 / hour. If this water is transmitted to Bukit Asah, electricity costs Rp. 1.288 /m3
