The G8 Communities are eight barrios in the outskirts
of San Juan. While physically close to the primary commercial
and business areas of the city, they are worlds
These communities started as informal settlements along
the Caño Martin Peña, a river channel that once a thriving
mangrove than ran through the city. Many original residents
relocated to this area as they were pushed out from the
construction of the business that rose up around them.
As the population grew, the wetlands have since become
highly polluted filling with debris and silt. Services are
limited in the area and there are no drainage systems
in the area; and when it rains, the area floods creating
additional challenges in accessing clean, safe water.
The AquaTower project, supported by Watts Water
Technologies, will provide this resilient community with
a vital tool to support them as they continue to rebuild
following Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Village: BARRIO TRES MONJAS
Beneficiaries (Students): 110
Village Population: 600-800 Families
"While the natural ecosystem of the area was destroyed after
the hurricanes, the settlement has grown into a unified and
organized community - establishing their own Community
Land Trust and local organizations to oversee the activities
in the community. These efforts have won them international
recognition for creating sustainable community development
models for informal settlements."
