Completion of Water Project in Dili

ATLAS member Chris Scharf made a site visit on 11th August 2016, and confirmed that water is now delivered to the water tanks at the women’s accommodation on the top of the hill (as in the scope of the original project). Fr Kasmir Nema informed him that the water had been obtained from a spring in the mountains about 2 km from the college. A 25 mm black polyethylene pipe has been laid on the ground to deliver the water. Female students living at the accommodation said that the water flowed to the water tanks 4-5 days per week. It would appear there is sufficient water now for requirements even though water pressure is poor. This is a great advance. Many thanks to the ATLAS donors who made this progress possible.
