Stage 3: Proof of Concept
The University of Maryland will test a technological solution to two critical needs in Haiti – the need for effective wastewater treatment to help curb the cholera epidemic, and the need for decentralized, low-cost energy sources. Access to clean water and availability of sanitation systems are limited in Haiti, and cholera is likely to persist until access to adequate water and sanitation improves.
