Port au Prince, Haiti
In 2015, at an orphanage in Port au Prince, we reviewed a water system and provided recommendations for improvements. We quickly found the children were drinking highly contaminated well water. The shallow well, installed by a US-based NGO was drawing water, in part, from nearby sewage run-off. Fecal contaminants were at extreme levels. Our technical team performed our proprietary assessment of the local water potential and identified a city pipeline that could be accessed to sustain the orphanage’s needs. We developed a project plan and installed a pipeline directly to their facility. Due to the city water being contaminated, we also installed a UV filtration and purification system at the point-of-use.
