Building new well for ASADA of Matapalo

Project Description

Building new well for ASADA of Matapalo

On July 19, 2016, the ASADA of Matapalo (the community institution that manages the local water supply) inaugurated its fifth well, adding an additional four liters per second to the community’s supply. The ASADA was able to construct this new well and pump house, thanks to donations from community members and a $10,000 contribution from Punta Sabana. With the inauguration of this new well, the ASADA was able to restore 24/7 water service to the community. Before the well was equipped, the residents of Matapalo were suffering was from severe water shortages and rationing, and only had access to water a few hours per day.
