Water in Haiti - Clean fresh water going to waste while others do not have it

While many people in Haiti wish thay had clean and fresh running water in their homes, in many parts of the country, that water goes to waste when they do get it.

Haiti Water Sanitation - Clean Running Water in Haiti

Take a look at the picture on this page...

Because the water pressure is so low, a water basin is constructed to catch the water when it comes. The problem with this formula is that water gets wasted, ONE because it gets dirty quickly. Also if there is no one there to close shut it down, that clean fresh water flows out of the little basin into the streets all day long.

There are no water meters in Haiti, you don't pay per gallon like in the United States. So there is no need to keep track of how much water flows through the faucet. Many people don't care if the excess water goes to waste.

Is this happening in your neighborhood in Haiti?

What do you think about that?
