Almost 5 months ago, the Treehouse Lodge started a project to create drinkable water in the Amazon for our neighbors: a local village. We are happy to report that the tanks have yet to run dry and the project continues to be a success.
The members of the local village established a “Water Tank Committee” and they’ve done a great job maintaining and distributing the clean drinking water to each member of the committee. Each day, both children and adults wake up and make their way over to the tanks for their daily drinking water. The committee chose to make water available each morning between 6AM – 9AM.
Naturally, a system that captures and filters rainwater requires some working knowledge. To help aid the village gain that knowldege, we’ve prepared a followup training for the Water Tank Committee on how to properly continue to use the filters and the gaskets on each tank.
As daily witnesses of the rainstorms of the Amazonian Rainforest, we’re excited to report that drinkable rainwater is a reality for this local Village.
