System now provides Treated Water to 100 Families.
Jack Timmins led a small team of local and international laborers and volunteers to implement this program.
Some years ago the small inland community on Bunaken was provided with a Reverse Osmosis (RO) System that should have provided them with palatable treated water. However the system was literally ‘dropped in’, the plumbing never started, the feedwater pumps never purchased and ultimately the filtration system had never been turned on.
The project required an initial detailed review of the system in order to determine if the system was salvageable and what upgrades/modifications were required. We also completed detailed testing of the proposed feedwater to ensure it was suitable for RO.
To get the system up and running we completed the following:
The project was a complete success, the small inland community on Bunaken now have drinking water that meets the WHO Drinking Water Guidelines, the community also now has an ongoing support network to assist with any community, operational or maintenance issues that may arise.
meters of new pipework installed.
families now have access to clean drinking water.
