BushProof participated in an extensive assessment looking at the social and technical aspects of implementation of reverse osmosis desalinisation units in different villages along the south-west coast of Madagascar in the Toliary region. The assessment was done alongside our partner Elemental Water Makers, and represents an option to provide freshwater to coastal villages in this region.
One of BushProof drilling teams drilled four pumping wells in the centre of Antananarivo to treat a plume of fuel found to be contaminating the aquifer from a leaking tank at a service station. The contaminated groundwater will be treated after pumping and re-injected into the aquifer.
BushProof is supervising the construction of an alternative biological water treatment system to treat the discharge of a vanilla treatment plant near Sambava (North-East of Madagascar). Two basins are lined with membrane and geotextile, then filled with gravel and aquatic plants. Our team is still on site.
We have just completed a session of our Technical Training in Water and Sanitation Infrastructure. We had seven participants from various countries, including South-Sudan, Zimbabwe, Yemen and Madagascar. The next training will be held in March 2015.
BushProof has just completed a 7-day WASH training in Juba, South Sudan. The training was run for 20 participants coming from two NGOs – Polish Humanitarian Action (PAH) and Solidarités International.
