Project Funding Needed: $23,100 - $10,000 donated by The Pittsburgh Foundation in memory of Rolinda Schneiderman ($5,000 pledged from David Goldberg and $1,800 pledged from Joe Kanfer)

The Problem

Current water system consists of a pumped borehole with contaminated water, non-functioning water holding tanks and pumped system breaks regularly. Students and staff are left with dangerous, unreliable water.
