The Situation

A request for storage tanks was sent in 2014 by the Ba rural health office. A field assessment highlighted the need for water quality solutions as heavy rainfall was bringing muddy contaminated water. Thanks to ongoing support from the Fiji Water Foundation, a 5000L storage tank and two sets of biosand filteration systems were built to cater for the drinking needs of Rara village. Gravel was sourced from the Nalotawa Riverbed, a 2 hour hike through hilly terrain. This project was made possible with funding from the Fiji Water Foundation and Rotary club donations.
