Obutei-Ewechu Community well is located in Arapai sub-county in the northern part of the Soroti district in Teso sub-region.
The community of Obutei village initially got water from an unprotected well which was 3 Kilometers from most homesteads. The water was dirty since it was shared with the animals and the water levels would lower down during the dry season. Water borne diseases such as cough were common. However, since the community well was drilled, cough is no more. The youth of Obutei are now planning to use the abundant water for watering oranges in the upcoming orange project.
