Montong Tangi is located in the east Lombok Regency
of Indonesia. Like most villages on Lombok, Montong
Tangi is faced with critical watershed issues that are water
supply and management problems caused by increasing
forest and water damage, along with land degradation.
The region is agrarian, with most families raising rice,
copra, cassava and tobacco.
Families here face many health issues that are caused by
impurities found in the water as a result of runoff from industrial
developments and mud during rainy season. They
lack water purification systems, resources and practices.
Dirty wells contain cloudy water due to infiltration of rain
runoff into the well. Because of the difficult conditions of
getting clean water, they are forced to consume the water
that causes diarrheal illness during the rainy season.
The hope of all community members in Montong Tangi
Village is to have easy to access to clean, safe water. With
the Planet Water Foundation AquaTower and hygiene
education provided by Metito, hope will soon be here.

“Our students are severly challenged by the quality of water here at the school and at their home. Our water comes from wells that are contaminated with runoff from the higher mountains that makes our water cloudy and makes us all sick. We often have children with absenses because they are sick with diarrhea or other stomach problems.We are hopeful that the new water filtration equipment will change this situation and all our students will remain in school. The community will be healthier too which is good for our economic situation.”
