Clean Water

Many worthy organizations battle the world’s water problem. IMPACT’s clean water program is different, and our first system is still in operation some 30 years later.

 

The IMPACT Advantage:

 

Sustainable Water Projects

 

IMPACT systems are gravity-based and simple to maintain, so they deliver safe water year after year. We don’t drill wells or install pumps. With no electricity or experienced mechanics in the remote villages, those types of water solutions eventually break down and become useless.

Being involved in building the system gives villagers a complete education on its operation. This knowledge allows them to take full responsibility for maintenance after completion.

 

In one village of 45 homes, the teacher told Mark Smith, executive director at IMPACT, that for 41 years, the children have not had clean water. Periodically, she removes 5″-6″ worms from their throats because of parasites. Here, Mark shows how IMPACT engineers, builds, and maintains clean water systems that never break down.
