Project Details The Songa Commune of the Bururi Provence in Burundi has very limited clean water resources. Currently the local inhabitants walk significant distances to obtain water from small springs and water pools that are not clean. The project will consist of three 0.9 liter-per-second source and collection chambers, and connect to two five-cubic-meter tanks. Eight tap stands will be distributed over 3.37 kilometers of pipeline. The tap stands (fountains) will provide access to the clean water source. Throughout the entire project, the pipeline will be buried below ground. Tap stands will include appropriate drainage. The project will serve approximately 2200 people from the surrounding population.
