Clean Water Systems
From deep boreholes (wells), to piped-water systems, to large-scale rainwater catchment and spring rehabilitation, we create the right solutions for clean water with community partners.
Using mostly groundwater, we create sustainable water sources that run 365 days per year. When groundwater is unavailable, we use rain. In all cases, we ensure that we plan side-by-side with communities and use manageable, simple, locally available technology to solve for clean water. And, we are different… we use high-quality materials and monitor each project, forever.
Problems we are impacting:
- Children missing school
- Equal education for girls and less chance of early motherhood
- Environmental degradation
- Lost hours of productivity
- Death and disease
A DLDT water source or system can serve 500-5,000 people:
Borehole (Deep Well): Starts at $12,000
Piped Water System (Rainwater or Ground-Water): Starts at $25,000
Rainwater (10,000 liters): Starts at $5,000
