Proposed WASH facilities in communities lacking indoor plumbing

WATEK Engineering Corporation, a Maryland-based company in partnership with the University of Maryland University College graduate program in Environmental Management, is working on a proposal to set up a holistic Community Water Center (CWC) in urban communities lacking Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) facilities in developing countries. WATEK conducts engineering, design, study, and construction of water and wastewater systems. WATEK’s water professionals have a passion to provide clean, sanitized water and sanitation systems to densely populated areas that lack access to indoor plumbing. The Team is very interested in working with all passionate water professionals to help address water and sanitation challenges around the world. WATEK’s pro bono concept, the Holistic Water and Sanitation Project, uses off-the-shelf technology and includes several systems of water use, packaged together as prefabricated modules CWCs to be shipped and installed in or by a village/community. Each CWC serves a minimum of 1,000 people and includes areas for dishwashing and laundry, showers, toilets, and water collection spigots for cooking, drinking, and other personal usage. The combination of 1) CWCs; 2) a centralized drinking water treatment plant; 3) centralized wastewater Treatment Plants; and 4) a Centralized Energy Plant can service up to 10,000 people for an estimated cost of $0.10 per person per day based on a 15-year life-cycle cost analysis. Each CWC can provide safe drinking water as well as treat used gray water from handwashing sinks and showers, which can be recycled for flushing toilets and transporting toilet waste to the centralized wastewater treatment plants. Watek’s holistic concept can be customizable depending on water source and size of community. Please click on the link to learn more about www.watek.com/volunteer-projects . We are interested in establishing partnerships and working with communities where this concept can be feasible as well as working with other water and sanitation professionals involved in similar projects. All input on this subject matter is greatly appreciated.
