Three years after Haiti had been struck by a 2010 catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake, this image was captured in the community of Trianon. These community members were photographed as they were standing at the entryway to a freshwater spring that provided drinking water for the town. In this view, a man was sitting astride his motorcycle, to which were attached two empty plastic buckets, which he would fill with spring water. He would then bring the water to be checked by staff members of the National Directorate for Drinking Water and Sanitation (DINEPA), who would test the water to determine its chlorine content. With Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) support, 54 of the 270 Drinking Water and Sanitation Technicians, or TEPAC (Techniciens en Eau Potable et en Assainissement pour les Communes) across Haiti, work for, and are equipped with motorcycles and testing equipment, and salaried through DINEPA.
