V3 and its team member Northwater International has been awarded the contract to rehabilitate 19 Port-au-Prince wells and install monitoring wells near each. The contract is awarded to V3 by the Direction Nationale de l’Eau Potable et de l’ Assainissement (DINEPA) and is funded through the Inter-American Development Bank and the Spanish Cooperation Fund for Water and Sanitation.

The work includes testing of the well, removal and inspection of the well pump, down-hole camera inspection and well geophysics using a mulit-frequency, full waveform sonic detector and a micromulinet flow meter.  The wells and pumps will be rehabilitated and full well tests will be performed using step-drawdown and constant rate testing protocols.

This project is an important component of the improvement program for Port-au-Prince’s water supply and the enhancement of the water utility for the residents throughout the metro region.
