Water Projects

What kind of water issues exist in your area and what kind of water projects are you considering to address these issues?

(Don't post specifics about your site for privacy reasons)

At my site near Iringa Town, we are on the top of a hill ~90m above the Ruaha River, we get water from two sources, a pump station managed by the Catholic Church (flat rate), and second in a neighboring village (which we pay for by the liter). 

Issues

  • Frequent outages durring dry season.
  • Costly water bills when the primary pump is down.
  • Drinking water must be retirived by students about a kilometer from the School and is not verifiably safe. 

Projects in Progress

  • Water catchment to supplement the water supply in the rainy season.
