Sustainability

Creating and measuring long-term impact

We are currently working with the village to develop a maintenance program including the new facilities.

Other Issues

Unusual and unexpected issues faced during project execution

A second phase of this project is planned provided funds can be found. During the project a study was done of the distribution system to the houses. Thefindings indicated that about 90 families were not connected to the water system. We have developed a plan and design to renovate the entire water distribution system to provide sufficient flow to all the houses for a period of 20 years utilizing the old and new springs on line in the village.
