Harrell and Morgan will discuss bringing household water supply to poor areas of China. They will highlight a case study from Southwest China, beginning with local conditions, and then moving on to consider the specifics of the effort: how the project was organized, what was accomplished, the problems they encountered and how they solved those problems. Finally, they will conclude the talk by discussing the factors of success and failure they encountered when building small-scale household water systems.
