The Wilson Street Well
The Waterloo Partnership are proud to fund the improvements for the Wilson Street Well. Access to regular, clean water is essential for good health. Previously the only way to fetch water from this well was to use a rope and bucket. The rope was left on the ground and would be encased in dirt. Also, there was no lid. These combined factors led to an increase in diarrhoea, especially among the younger children.
Today there is a new pump and a lid for the residents and school children who live and study in the Wilson Street area.
Here are the before and after photographs.
