Barrio Israel is one of the smaller communities within
the G8 Communities, a group of eight barrios that
emerged as informal settlements in the shadows of San
The community is located closest to the Caño Martin
Peña, a waterway that use to run through the city and is
now clogged with pollution, and is therefore most susceptible
to the flooding that occurs each time it rains.
Because these communities are informal settlements,
infrastructure for sewage and water is extremely limited.
When the area floods, drinking water sources become
contaminated, resulting in an ongoing lack of trust of
the cleanliness of the water.
A clean, safe water supply has long been needed in this
community – becoming more critical since the impacts
of Hurricane Irma and Maria. Watts Water Technologies
support of an AquaTower project in Barrio Israel will
provide a long-needed asset to this community.
Beneficiaries (Students): 150

“The island is going to receive more intense hurricanes
as the atmosphere and oceans warm,” says Louis Jorge Rivera
Herrera, a San Juan-based environmental scientist and
winner of the 2015 Goldman Environmental Prize. “The
kind of community projects you see in El Caño, deeply
rooted in citizen involvement and empowerment, provide
an excellent footprint to follow in the years ahead.”
