Water Sources

We've come a long, long way

Most of us take our infrastructure for granted - water, electricity, some internet connectivity – yet each of these has been a challenge and a project at the EBCCK campus. When the children first moved onto the site, it was necessary to truck in water and fill storage tanks. With time, they were able to hook into public water from a community well but, although the water was filtered, the kids still had chronic issues. Now the campus is dotted with storage tanks and a system that provides clean water for drinking by capturing rain water run-off from the roofs. In 2011, EBCCK was able to drill a well on their own lower property and from that well water is pumped to tanks at the top of the property, then gravity brings it down. A large stone water tank will be the next chapter in this story.
