1st trip to Haiti. Three systems were installed in the Creve (Mole/St. Nicolas) area.
The assessment of drinking water quality is under-taken for many reasons. The identification of water quality problems and issues is our primary focus. We now have the capability to test potential drinking water sources for a number of chemical, physical and microbiological parameters (As, Pb, Mn, Cu, Al, Fe, NO3, NH4, F, pH, conductivity and coliform bacteria)before moving forward with a water project.
We often encounter governments that are unwilling or incapable of providing safe water to their citizens - especially those in remote areas, Sometimes a community has no funds or they lack the basic technical skills to access safe water. We work around these obstacles and partner with local missionaries, churches, community leaders and other groups who want to provide safe water to their people. We target smaller communities, church, schools or organizations since they are usually overlooked.
We design, build, and install batch chlorine disinfection water systems. Batch sizes vary from 65 gallons to 600 gallons. Batches can be produced approximately every hour depending upon the raw water supply. The systems are easy to operate and usually only have a couple of moving parts (valves). They also use swimming pool chlorine tablets (globally available).
We also assess the water quality of potential drinking water sources. Using the WHO's Rapid Assessment of Drinking Water Quality - Oct 2012 (RADWQ) as our basis, we test the drinking water source quality and determine it's suitability prior to installing safe water systems.
