Calibishi Sanitation Project

In late 2013, Rotary Club of Portsmouth made the decision to do a sanitation project in Calibishi for 50 of their residents who did not have bathroom facilities using Stewco Construction for the installation.

In February, 2014, the Club started with 2 as a pilot to fine tune the construction process and any challenges not foreseen.

The septic tanks and soak-away were first constructed and then the pvc piping installed in the home and connected to the septic tanks.

A toilet, face basin and shower were installed to complete the bathroom.

The Honorable Prime Minister Skerrit, announced at our weekly meeting, 3 April 2014 that the government will support our project with a donation of $260,000 for the materials. Rotary Club of Portsmouth will fund the installation.
