Recently Paul and a group of locals climbed up the volcano to our water source and found the perfect location for a new spring box. Water is coming out of a spring on the side of the volcano at 80 gallons/minute, which is 40 percent more water than is currently available from the system. Over the coming weeks we will be securing the spring box, which will dramatically improve both the cleanliness and security water for the entire La Ciguena cooperative. The water cooperative includes InanItah along with 23 Nicaragaun families and 100s of acres of agricultural farms.

A recent tropical rainstorm that ravaged parts of Central America also hit us here on Ometepe, sending powerful waves of water and mud cascading down the volcano and taking out a part of our community’s water system. Our entire area was affected, and InanItah and 23 families were without running water for over two weeks.
