Safe Drinking Water for Maldives

The United States Agency for International Development, or USAID, and the Government of Maldives inaugurated a $3.8 million integrated water supply and distribution system recently, providing a safe and reliable water source for more than 4,000 residents of Hinnavaru Island.

最近,美国国际开发署(USAID)以及马尔代夫政府为集成供水配水系统捐助了380万美元,为Hinnavaru岛的4000多居民提供了安全可靠的水源。

The system collects water from rainwater harvesting tanks, mixes it with desalinated water, and distributes it through a piped network to households on the island.

该系统从雨水收集池中收集水源,对水源进行脱盐处理,然后通过管道系统将处理后的水送往岛上的各家各户。

The system includes an 80 cubic meter/day capacity “reverse osmosis unit” housed in a facility partially1 powered by solar energy and complemented2 by a ground water filtration system that collects excess rainwater and directs it to the island's aquifer3, supporting the recharging of the island's groundwater over time.

该系统内含每天可处理80立方米水源的“反渗透装置”,该装置的部分能源由太阳能提供。除此之外,该系统还有一个地下水过滤系统,该过滤系统收集过量的雨水,并将其导入岛上的蓄水层,支持地下水补给。

To serve the water quality testing needs of Hinnavaru and nearby islands, the facility is also equipped with a regional water quality testing laboratory. Additionally, the facility includes space for utility staff daily operations.

为了满足Hinnavaru及其附近岛屿的水质检测需要,该系统还配备了地区水质检测实验室。此外,还配置了工作人员日常操作的场所。

The USAID-funded system was designed and constructed by the United Nations Office for Project Services, in partnership4 with the Ministry5 of Environment and Energy, Fenaka Corporation Limited, and the Hinnavaru Island Council. USAID also provided technical assistance and training for water utility officials to operate and maintain the system, currently operated by Fenaka Corporation Limited.

这个由美国国际开发署资助的系统由联合国项目服务办公室、环境和能源部、Fenaka有限公司、Hinnavaru岛委员会共同设计打造。美国国际开发署还为负责供水的工作人员提供了操作维护系统的技术援助。目前,该系统由Fenaka有限公司运营。

“Around the world, USAID and its partners are working towards a healthier and water secure future for all,” said Dr. Andrew Sisson, USAID Mission Director for Sri Lanka and Maldives.

在全球范围内,美国国际开发署与其合作伙伴都在为全球人民能拥有一个更加健康以及水质安全的未来做努力,美国国际开发署负责斯里兰卡和马尔代夫事务的负责人安德鲁 西森(Andrew Sisson)如是说道。

“Therefore, we are proud to have supported a successful partnership with the government and people of Maldives to ensure safe and high quality drinking water on one of Maldives' most populous6 islands, through an integrated water supply and distribution system.”

因此,我们很自豪能与马尔代夫政府及其人民成为伙伴,确保马尔代夫人口最多的群岛能获得安全高质量的饮用水,方式是通过这个集成的供水配水系统。
