Smart solution to clean water need: Bringing Dutch technologies to serve the low income

Within 1 year with the awarded financial support of VBCF Howaco increased affordable clean water access to 2,485 households in the rural area of Can Giuoc Dist. Long An Province. More than 60% of the beneficiaries are low income families who used to fetch water from polluted sources or had to buy bottled water against incredible high prices. To increase and improve water supply for 12.000 people Howaco had to: + Double the capacity of the two existing water treatment plants from 2.900 m3/day to 5.800 m3/day; + Install an extra filtration step to remove manganese to achieve the water quality from QCVN02 2009/byt to the highest standard QCVN01 2009/byt; + Extend the distribution network and install 2,485 new watermeters; + Develop and install a SCADA system for both water treatment plants to improve operational efficiency. Howaco also educated children at 5 primary schools in the communities about the importance of using clean water and saving water. Our project was chosen as one of the most successful and was presented in a video to His Royal Highness Willem Alexander at the 50th anniversary of SNV in The Hague.
