Conclusion of Community Aqueduct – Dominican Republic

Aqueduct - Los Cacaos, Dominican RepublicThis project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Andrew Gibbons. To read about the beginning of this project, CLICK HERE.

The project called for a new community aqueduct to be built to bring potable water from a small spring 1 kilometer away to houses of the village of Los Cacaos.

The pipe line was dug and the suspended river crossings were completed. The intake tank was built, followed by a reserve tank. A small pump was installed, pipes were run to the homes, and faucets were installed.

Piping for Aqueduct

This was a tremendous community effort, incorporating the entire village, the water committee, and various funding sources. As a result, 242 people now have access to safe water.

A letter from the water committee expressed gratitude for the money that went to construct the aqueduct. We again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing funding for this project.
