Nigerians turn to alternative water sources

Residents of Lagos turn to informal wells as government infrastructure is insufficient and over-burdened.

    In Nigeria's Lagos state many residents have turned to informal wells to provide water. 

    Some of the state's water infrastructure has been neglected for decades and officials say the little infrastructure that does exist is over-burdened.
     
    Millions of residents now rely on informal well diggers to get their water supply.
