Three years after Haiti had been struck by a 2010 catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake, this image was captured in the community of Trianon. Alongside her large stack of plastic buckets, this community member was photographed as she was standing at the entryway to a freshwater spring that provided drinking water for the town. She would fill these containers with spring water, and take them take back to her residence. First, she would bring the water to be checked by staff members of the National Directorate for Drinking Water and Sanitation (DINEPA), who’d 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.
