Amazon Community Water Collection and Sanitation
The community at Camp Chilly Urku lies on a ridge which runs through the jungle and doesn’t have access to running water. However, rainwater is in plentiful supply but at the moment there are no water harvesting or storage facilities in place.
This project aims to build a reservoir above the village, providing them with clean fresh water. The community already has a water pump that can feed from the river to the reservoir, which can then supply the school and nearby houses. In 2017 a series of water tanks were installed at strategic locations within the village.
