The overall goal of the Project is to provide secure and safe water supply to the residents of Weno Island in Chuuk State. Specifically, the Project will (i) develop water demand forecasts for Weno Island up to the year 2020, and identify potential sources of water to meet long-term demand. A willingness to pay (WTP) survey and a tariff study will also be undertaken; (ii) increase the quantity of water abstracted from groundwater sources to reduce the gap between demand and supply; (iii) improve the quality of water delivered to water supply consumers through chlorination; (iv) decrease the incidence of waterborne diseases; (v) train water supply personnel to maintain the water supply wells; and (vi) increase community awareness on the need to use water wisely and to protect watersheds.
