USAID Potable Water Delivery System Design for Developing Community

Canaan, Haiti

  • V3 is charged with evaluating and expanding upon the existing drinking water network in Canaan, Haiti. Canaan is a settlement located just outside of Port-Au-Prince and is one of the most densely populated regions in Haiti. This mini-city was established shortly after the earthquake in 2010 as many residents fled their homes in search of a safe haven. Now it is home to more than 200,000 people, most of which lack basic access to water and sanitation.

  • V3 is working on the plans for a water distribution network within the first sector of Canaan that will give improved water access to more than 50,000 people.

  • V3 is also working on a master plan for future expansions that will bring improved water access to an additional 150,000 people. As part of the detailed plan design, V3 created detailed EPANET models of more than 6,000 meters of existing and proposed watermain.

  • V3 will deliver final plans, technical specifications and provide construction supervision and quality control. Most importantly, V3 will provide technical assistance to local agencies so that the system can be run and maintained by the community for the foreseeable future.
