Artesian Wells and Water Microsystems Project

Date Created: 1999
Main beneficiaries: riverside communities of Oriximin√° and Terra Santa.

By the early '90s, many of riverside dwellers living in the region around MRN suffered the consequences of lack of clean water because the supply networks of the city cannot reach remote communities. The problem is further aggravated during the dry season when the rains cease. During this period, the streams are left with very low water level, affecting the homes in the communities farther from rivers and streams, which makes access to water.


Sensitive to this situation, we developed the Artesian Wells and Water Microsystems Project through which wells are constructed to meet the needs of the families living in riverside-dwelling communities. The initiative has caused a significant reduction in diseases caused by contaminated water, such as diarrhea, intestinal worms, hepatitis, among others, as evidenced by the figures in the Quilombo Project.
