Conclu sustainable water management

Background

Santo Domingo Ocotitlán and Amatlán de Quetzalcóatl are two indigenous communities that lack potable water and sewer services. As the soil is highly permeable, inadequate wastewater treatment and the direct runoff into receiving bodies lead to serious pollution problems for the communities themselves and for the ecosystem.

Project activities seek to ensure that these vulnerable groups, consisting mostly of indigenous women, know, build, maintain and take over a series of self-sufficient technologies, enabling them to increase the availability of high-quality water, reduce contamination and create awareness of the biological wealth of their surroundings and the importance of living in a protected natural area.

Goals

  1. Provide and train on alternative technologies to increase the availability of high-quality water to vulnerable groups and to reduce the contamination of receiving bodies due to the direct runoff from graywater or sewage in a domestic rural environment.
  2. Foster awareness on the use and benefits of the alternative technologies.
  3. Create awareness on the importance of water resources and the area’s biological wealth.
