US Avails Potable Water in Afar

October 5 , 2019

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with DuPont Water Solutions, built a water well for the community in Serdo, Afar Regional State. The well was inaugurated on October 2, 2019, with the presence of Michael Raynor, the United States Ambassador to Ethiopia, and Awol Arba, president of Afar Regional State. The water well will provide water to over 2,000 people in the area. USAID’s Lowland Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) project, in collaboration with DuPont Water Solutions and the Afar Water and Irrigation Resource Development Bureau, installed a reverse osmosis water system featuring a standalone cooling tower. The USAID's WASH project has reportedly built 25 community-water supply systems and rehabilitated 91 water systems over the past few years, providing access to safe drinking water for more than 200,000 people living in the area where water is scarce.
