In Meghalaya, a 200 year old system of tapping stream and spring water by using bamboo pipes,
is prevalent.

. Bamboo pipes are used to divert perennial springs on the hilltops to the lower reaches by gravity.
. The channel sections made of bamboo, divert water to the plant site, where it is distributed into branches.
. If the pipes pass roads, they are taken high above the land on the free branches.
. Reduced channel sections and diversion units are used at the last stage of water application. The last channel section enables water to be dropped near the roots of the plant.
