Asia ; Cambodia
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The team will work with local partners to design, construct, and monitor a fully functional water system with private funds that
is capable of delivering potable water on demand to rural households. Fundamental to this project is education at all levels; we will train a local partner to build and maintain the system, and oversee its implementation. With follow-up through a local NGO partner, we will test system operation, and work with the local partner to improve and maintain system performance.
