Project Description

Region: Central America

Country: El Salvador

Location: El Pital and Las Tablas

Total Budget: $138,521

Area of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene


Project Description:

Two communities in El Salvador, El Pital and Las Tablas, currently have limited access to water which relies on community access to an open spring. Dynamic weather conditions, like droughts and periodic heavy rains (which erode the land around the spring), make it an unreliable and insecure source of water for the communities involved. The current open storage negatively impacts the cleanliness of the available water, and the poor distribution means that the water is not consistently available.

The goal of this project is to provide an easily-maintained and sustainable supply of clean and safe water distributed to each household.

The proposed solution consists of a well and a pump to access reliable water from an aquifer, a storage tank that will be located above the communities (for gravity feed), a transmission line between the well and the tank, and a distribution system to get the water from the tank to each house. The water supplied will be disinfected by chlorination. The electric pump will ensure that the storage tank is kept full. The gravity-driven distribution system will provide a more consistent and regular supply of household-level water access to homes in both communities. The closed system, disinfected water, and reliable distribution ensures a much safer source of potable water for all involved.

The communities will participate in the installation of the well and in the ongoing operation. Community members will provide labor, including digging trenches for the distribution system, and supporting the US crew implementing the system. Through monthly payments by the community members served, the ongoing expenses (electricity and chlorination) will be covered, as well as building a fund for larger repairs.

Estimated number of people helped: Combined population of the two communities is approximately 750 people.

There has been some fallout due to COVID, both in terms of delays and in terms of inflation. I'm updating the budget to reflect the higher costs associated with the well and the transmission / distribution piping.

DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
