There is On-going Project Follow-up


Project Database

All projects are tracked in a database that was custom designed by Ideas Computer in Thunder Bay. Using this database we track key information including:

  • When Wells & Washrooms were build
  • When facilities were last inspected
  • Repair and maintenance history
  • Contact names and cell phone numbers for trained village Project Caretakers and Repair Technicians
  • Maintenance contract information (type, payments received etc)

 

Pump Repair

Villagers can choose to maintain their water and sanitation facilities in any of the following ways:

  • Take care of it totally themselves
  • Buy the parts they need from Lifewater and do the work themselves
  • Wait until their pump breaks and then contact Lifewater to repair it (and charge for parts + labour)
  • Sign a flat-fee contract for the Lifewater Crew to perform scheduled preventative maintenance

 

Hygiene Follow-up

Sometimes village-level maintenance fails and pumps sit broken or washrooms become filthy and unused. Lifewater then conducts a health & hygiene workshop to ensure that the people understand the connection between sickness and unsafe water and poor sanitation. Lifewater then offers to repair their facilities but cost-recovery fees are charged.

Lifewater Canada volunteers periodically visit previously completed projects to observe long-term maintenance and use.
