Clean water for the Wiwa | ACCIONA
So that the Wiwa can continue with their traditional way of life, ACCIONA, in collaboration with Corpoguajira, the department’s environmental agency, and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), embarked upon a project to clean up the Wiwa’s water.
ACCIONA’s innovation area installed a drinking water purification plant in the Seyamake community with the capacity to treat eight cubic meters of water every hour, its 5,000-liter tank supplying clean and drinkable water to 400 people a day throughout the Seyamake community.
Also, the water treatment plant is powered by solar panels, such that it neither emits any kind of atmospheric pollution nor uses fuel to operate. Meanwhile, the electricity left over is used to pump water up to a raised tank for irrigating crops.
