A system to extract the spring water by creating a hole against the hill wall and channeling the water with pipes to the platform underneath. The spring water is a result of water infiltration through the pristine ‘forbidden’ forest and filtered by its roots. The people of Kampung Naga use it as a source for drinking water.
The waterways flow the river water into the main irrigation channel leading to Kampung Naga. It utilizes piles of alluvial rocks that can be adjusted according to the seasonal change of the river water discharge. The people in Kampung Naga maintain this system manually as part of community activities to maintain social bonds.
