Sujol

Project Introduction:
This document focuses on the phase 1 pilot project: proof of concept. This document comprises the technical and operational activities in detail. Activities related to business planning, marketing of the project, stakeholder engagement and communications are being detailed in the business plan.
The purpose of this test plan is to provide procedures for all participants involved in testing FTC and related equipment to ensure quality test data. This test program comprises three FTC units that will be tested for a period of 18 months. The results are expected to greatly accelerate the innovative FTC technology to treat brackish and arsenic contaminated water into the Bangladesh rural market place making water treatment technology widely available for local entrepreneurs.Goal and Objective:
The main goal of the test program is to proof the concept; the focus is on testing the technical aspects of the device. Besides, EMF takes the opportunity to test the basic commercial assumptions of the business plan. 

Establish within 10 years up to 30,000 financially independent micro water businesses in Bangladesh. Of course this is a very challenging goal; however it underlines the sense of urgency and market potential.

The objectives of this test programme are to:

  • present data on the impact of variations in feed water quality such as Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), arsenic, iron, phosphate and manganese on performance;
  • determine the logistical, human and economic resources necessary to operate and maintain the equipment;
  • determine the reliability, ruggedness and ease of operation and maintenance;

Determine and optimize detailed system design and operating specifications shaped by installation, operation, resources and economic requirements and test results.

Outputsà Resultsà Outcome:                
Outputs

  • A Community level baseline Survey was Completed and “A community perspective on the desirability and feasibility of micro drinking water businesses in Bangladesh “on this title a research Paper was completed.
  • A capDI System with whole structural setup was already installed and first trial run was successfully completed.
  • A Opening Ceremony and Local level Workshop was Completed of 1st Plant

Results

  • From the Sujol Plant 1st test site Kalaroa near about 250HH people are drinking water from the plant.

Addressing WASH in Southern Bangladesh (WASH Plus) project

Project Introduction:

Bhola district located in Southwestern Bangladesh is selected as the proposed project site because of the region’s high incidence of water born diseases, poor nutrition indicators, absence of sustainable WaSH service provision, and highly marginalized and environmentally vulnerable population. Its proximity to the Bay of Bengal makes this region particularly vulnerable. With geographically comprised mostly of rivers and isolated hard-to-reach river islands, communities in these areas have limited livelihood opportunities due to unpredictable natural disasters, poor infrastructure, limited access and communication with the mainland, saline contamination, and inadequate safe drinking water and sanitation services. A number of barriers exist within southwestern Bangladesh that needs to be addressed to promote and sustain WASH coverage within this area.

Outcome 1:Poor and disadvantaged people’s access to safe drinking water, improved sanitation, and their hygiene practices improved.

Outcome 2: Local capacity to operate and maintain WASH facilities; manage allocation and utilization of WASH budgets

Outcome 3:Improved evidence base documentation and coordination in programming among WASH-nutrition actors for sustainability of WASH facilities ensured.

Outputs:

Output 1.1: People living without appropriate WASH facilities have gained or improved their access to safe drinking water and/or hygienic latrines.

Output 1.2: At least one-fourth of the households served with safe water and/or improved sanitation facilities have adopted better hygiene (hand washing) and feces disposal practices.

Output 1.3: An increased number of communities (wards) within the target areas have attained ODF status as per survey/local government recognition.
