Liberia Fenutoli Watershed of Bong County

Project Summary

Inhabitants of Bong County, Liberia do not have sufficient access to clean and safe water. The use of unprotected sources of water for domestic use remains widespread, and less than 2% of inhabitants of the county have access to safe drinking water. This poses a major public health problem for the county’s communities because it exposes them to the risk of contracting diarrhea and other water-borne diseases.

The goal of this project was to provide clean water to more than 5,000 villagers living in four villages in the Fenutoli watershed in Bong County, Liberia. In this project, four new hand-dug water wells were constructed (15-30 meters deep), lined with concrete and fitted with hand pumps. In addition, two existing wells were refurbished by patching holes in the concrete liner and repairing the pumps. The well construction and refurbishing was completed in August, 2008.

As a result of the construction and refurbishing of these six wells, 5,138 people in the villages of Garyea, Konnie, Gleekormah and Nyain have increased access to clean and safe water.
