Tetra Tech Restores Clean Water after 15 Years of Civil Unrest in Liberia
After 15 years of civil war, Liberia struggled to reinstitute water service delivery leaving tens of thousands without potable water. Tetra Tech is supporting the Liberia Municipal Water Project (LMWP), funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), to help restore access to clean drinking water for three million people and transform the local utility through the development of a public-private partnership for long-term sustainability.
We designed low-cost, context-appropriate treatment plants that run on renewable energy to meet the needs of local, national, and private stakeholders and ensure sustainability. In addition to installing water infrastructure, Tetra Tech is helping communities build capacity and teaching multilateral stakeholders how to operate and maintain the facilities, providing access to clean water for years to come and helping Liberia advance towards self-reliance.
This video explains how the water treatment system works, adapts to the local context, and meets the water infrastructure needs of three Liberian cities.
