APIC-MCT Cooperation Project
Reservoir and Distribution System Repair Project in Wone, Kitti, Pohnpei
Over 1,000 people reside in Wone, with the majority of residents are either farmers or fishermen. Wone is one of the largest villages in the state of Pohnpei; however, because the area’s dams, water catchment facilities and pipes are in a fragile state, it had been difficult to secure safe drinking water for a long time. This problem has been exacerbated due to the recent droughts in Pohnpei. Wone has two water supply systems, but neither are working properly due to the fact that they are built in areas prone to landslides. A landslide that occurred a few years ago partially filled the dam with mud, rendering the water contaminated.
(Dam before repair)
A ceremony to celebrate the completion of the dam was held on May 29th, 2021, where the villagers gathered and held a prayer ritual.
