Pettugodalu is a small village in Hukumpeta, a tribal mandal of Visakhapatnam District with 150 members. The village has 30 acres of the land, 100% dependent on rainfall. There is a stream passing at 200 feet distance to the land and at a depth of 70 feet where from June to January, water flows at 3 feet height. The villagers are ready to give half of acre of land for storing the water. But, the issue is that all the villagers are wage seekers, and cannot invest from their pockets. The panchayat has come forward to invest 10,000 rupees to bring the water to these 30 acres.
