Water For People (www.waterforpeople.org) is challenging everyone who is interested in improving global sanitation to break the silence and get people thinking and talking about toilets. The “Support a Movement” sanitation video competition sponsored by Image Brew, LLC (www.imagebrew.com) will bring the unmentionable details of sanitation into the spotlight to highlight its importance and raise awareness for the billions of people who don't have access to adequate toilets.
This fall, Water for People released a monitoring tool called FLOW, for Field Level Operations Watch. The tool relies on smartphones and global mapping technologies to provide networked information about the state of water and sanitation projects.
NEWEA proudly sent three Operation Challenge teams to compete in the nation competition held during WEFTEC'10 in New Orleans, LA this past October.
