Why Haiti? • 10,000,000 population • No national or regional water purification systems • 44% have no access to any form of improved water source • No national, regional, or municipal sanitary sewer systems exist in Haiti • Only private sewer treatment (septic) systems • Churches, church schools, private residences • Only 22% have access to any form of improved sanitary sewer system
