Client: AIA Legacy
In coordination with the American Institute for Architect’s non-profit organization, AIA Legacy, Meliora contributed water, wastewater, and stormwater assessments and recommendations for the North and Northeast Departments of Haiti as part of an overall Master Plan for the region. The Master Plan was developed in response to proposed industrial development and subsequent projected population growth in eight towns within the study area, with the goal of developing sustainably, reducing poverty, providing infrastructure, and protecting sensitive environmental features. The water, wastewater, and stormwater assessments of the region were developed from available data and from visiting the region and meeting with local residents and government officials. Recommendations for future research needs, water policies, specific regional and local projects, and a technology toolbox were developed while balancing cultural, economic, and environmental considerations with a strong emphasis on treating all water as a single, interconnected resource.
