Welcome to the Enugu State Project! This initiative seeks to develop a sustainable water source of clean water for the village of Adu Achi in Southeastern Nigeria, serving as a pilot for community-based water management in the area. The village has relied upon distant and contaminated surface water sources, traveling up to 3km almost 6 times per day in the dry season. 

A site assessment in August of 2006 was followed by three implementation trips in the winter and summer of 2008 and the summer of 2009. In the winter of 2011/2012, a monitoring trip was completed to review the status of the system, train employees and restructure the local management committee. Another monitoring trip took place during the summer of 2013. In addition to technical feasibility, this project emphasizes community organization, well and system management, improved health, education and sustainability.

This project has received several National & International awards, including:
