Supplying Critical Water for Haitian Hospital

by Konbit Sante Cap-Haitien Health Partnership
Mar 14, 2007

Water Main and Well Controls

New water main and a well control system are due to arrive in Haiti in March 2007. The main will replace the existing pipe, which runs through a medical waste pipe. The new pipe should eliminate this contamination.

The pump controls will replace the existing system, which requires the operator to manual restart the pump whenever there is a power loss. Cap Haitien has suffered with irregular power, typically having less than 8 hours in the night. If the operator did not return to the hospital to restart the pump, there was no water. The new controls will run the pump whenever there is power and the switch is on.

This work should be completed by June 2007.
