THE NEED

Homes in the village of Armenta, Honduras only receive water one day a week.In addition the medical center that treats both people and animals often goes without water for days, greatly hampering their ability to adequately serve the community. The people we visited are allowed to fill up their pillas (home water storage facility) one day a week. They draw all water for drinking, preparing food, laundry, bathing, sanitation, etc, from that single home storage source throughout the week.

PROJECT SCOPE

The goal of our site assessment trip will be to gather all information necessary to develop a Master Water Plan for the community. This will include recommended enhancements to their existing Water Program including things like; developing ways to improve maintenance and capital fund generation, improved water distribution layout and monitoring practices, maintenance education and a physical implementation of a phased-in improved water distribution system to meet their current water needs as well as make provision for future expansion.

FUTURE INVOLVEMENT

We have already built a pedestrian bridge for this community over another waterway that previously divided the community in half. We eagerly look forward to working with them to fund, develop and implement a reliable clean water system. Beyond this project we anticipate looking into ways to effectively handle all the “grey water” this project produces. We recognize this as a “good challenge” to have and one we eagerly look forward to.
