Water Supply

A capped spring, located 2 miles up the riverbed from the village, feeds the WISH waterline where it flows into a 40,000 gallon reservoir. The reservoir supplies enough water pressure to reach 19 public fountains throughout the village. Portions of the waterline are suspended on the cliffs of the ravine, vulnerable to rock slides. The fountain in each neighborhood is a bustle of activity day and night as villagers fill buckets or barrels to carry home. Constant maintenance of this water system is a major responsibility of our missionaries and our Haitian employees.
