Summary

This project will ensure that 165 under served households will get 33 cubic meters or at least 61 liters of clean and safe water daily and save time from queuing in a single dug well with high iron content depended solely by the villagers after Haiyan struck in 2013. A water tank will be built and distribution lines and tap stands installed in strategic household clusters. A hybrid solar-powered submersible pump will be installed deemed efficient for water extraction

Challenge

When typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines in November 8 , 2013 many community water systems either remained dis-repaired or left unfixed. One of these is Brgy Cantawiris, Tolosa, Leyte where 165 households have to contend with a single dug well through manual extraction for water supply often causing dysentery related diseases especially among children aged 12-15 years old. The water contains E-coli and high iron. In dry months, the villagers are forced to buy water at 2 U$ per day

Solution

The project will restore and improve damaged tank reservoir structure, deepened the well and treat the water of its pollutants, build a level 2 distribution system (from source, a common tapstand will be constructed in household cluster) and install a 1.5kW submersible solar-powered pump to extract and distribute water. The community will be trained to operate, maintain and manage the system guided by policies and tariff systems based on their willingness and capacity to pay to maintain it

Long-Term Impact

The project will ensure that at least 165 households will have steady supply of 33 cubic meter of potable water daily, or about 61 liters1of clean water daily, be off-risk of water-borne diseases, allocate savings from buying water to food, school, medical and other domestic expenditures, raise backyard vegetables, a little poultry and swine towards normalcy after the typhoon. As such water supply will be made highly accessible, treated and lessen queuing hours and increase kids study time
