Security check point
I am honored to be here writing you this update report during these times. It's been a year since the Hopi reservation has been in lock down with security check points set up at the enterences of all 12 village to help control with stopping the spreading of the virus. The project has still been moving forward but with a very slow pace due to the villages being closed to residents only. Now that the numbers of people being tested positive has been dropping and more people are getting vaccinated, the tribe has been working on getting the reservation open with new protocols in place. I have now been able to go into some of the villages to do filter installations as well as installing the newly received Reverse Osmosis Systems that were purchased from your contributions to the project, for that I say thank you (Kwahkw`a). I would like to also mention that our project is giving support to the Village of Tewa "Zero Water" filter project to help increase life span of their filter thus increasing the amount of clean water per filter before changing, I will be the water consultant for their project. Together the NOARSENIC4HOPI Project and the Tewa Zero Water Filter Project will continue the efforts of getting clean water for the people. We have also reached out to the Navajo in the White Cone area of Arizona with a true water protector in lead by the name of Vanessa Dundon. She was given 18 counter top units to start with for her community and the surrounding communities.
