Title: Sustainable Water Development Program for Rural Nigeria

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign students will create a sustainable water development program for rural Nigeria, a country where over 50% of the population does not have access to safe drinking water. They seek to help the village of Adu Achi develop a water management program and a distribution system that uses water from the Ajali aquifer. Currently the village depends upon contaminated surface water 3 km away. Groundwater from the aquifer is a safer and more dependable option.
