DelAgua Kit Case Study - Comet-ME Testing in South Mount Hebron Region
Comet-ME is an Israeli-Palestinian NGO providing sustainable off-grid energy and water services to rural
Palestinian communities in the South Mount Hebron region of the occupied Palestinian territories.
The local Palestinian communities are not connected to the water grid and people depend on seasonal rainfall for their water supply, harvesting the rainwater in cisterns.
Comet-ME's water programme addresses two main problems:
- Labour intensiveness of household water management
- High levels of microbiological contamination in the drinking water.
Comet-ME are able to test at source (the cistern) and after filtration, using the DelAgua Water Testing Kit, to ensure the water is safe to drink.
