About 200 km north from Senegal’s capital of Dakar, on the outskirts of the town of St. Louis near the Mauritanian border, there is a small village of around 300 people. In this village where all the daily work relies on a single river nearby, a simple, compact “Yamaha Clean Water System” using natural filtration methods was completed in 2011. The system’s distinctive sky-blue equipment and sanitary water drawing station were installed in the middle of the village. The villagers formed a committee to self-manage the water supply in an orderly way as a community, and have been able to secure a daily supply of fresh, potable water as a result.
