Water Project in China’s Rural Mountain Areas
In 2012/2013, ERBER Group supported a project to bring safe and reliable drinking water to the over 1000 villagers living in Hujia in Hunan province and Hetaowan in Guizou province. Over the course of 12 months, pipelines, storage-tanks and filters were built to deliver drinking water directly to the two villages.
The project was proposed by the local water administration station and the village community. The local village organized a committee to manage the project. Villagers volunteered their own labor, sometimes working after-hours and during holidays to complete the system and connect it to all homes in the village.
