About the project Edit

This project aims to make water resource available as both drinking water and domestic use. This will be done by: setting up water tanks adapted for water collecting, adopting a new building system that allows water collection and by putting in place a water treatment system.


In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

This project is unique in the sense that the question of water availability and quality posed is very crucial in cities especially with the demographic explosion and that the water resource is becoming more and more rare. Therefore, water initiatives must be developed to retain and appreciate rainwater.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

This project allows populations to increase the availability of drinking water by using rainwater for domestic needs (washrooms, washing cars, dishes, clothes, etc.).

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

Increase resource availability, save money on water bills in the urban environment, individualize the resource and autonomy to restrict use, reduce drinking water consumption, reduce the size of production and drinking water supply facilities

Using this water does not require drinking water “quality” and, therefore, reducing chemical treatments.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

The triggering factor of this project was initially depletion of resources, shortages in periods of heat and drought, conflicts in use due to restrictions, access to all water resources and finally, the rising cost of water.

What is the business model of this project? Edit
