EWB-UNH’s Thailand program focused on building a drinking water system to eliminate waterborne illness, and constructing a waste water system to minimize the environmental impact of sewage. A gravity- driven pipeline was implemented to bring water from the spring to the village. A roughing filter and two slow sand filters were installed to remove contaminants from the water before it enters the new storage tank. A new leach field was constructed for bathroom waste water. Bridges were built spanning ravines, and a PVC pipeline was installed to supply water for vegetables gardens, washing, and bathrooms. This project provided Thailand with access to clean, safe drinking water, and waste water treatment.
