Our Team

Northwater International fully delivered on the Terms of Reference for a hydrogeological technical appraisal of our project in Haiti. The quality of the report and analysis is highly appreciated. We received viable guidance on which water supply solutions to explore, and which ones to avoid . Wanted to say thanks for Northwater’s support on the Dano [Water Supply] project in Haiti. The backstopping was crucial and you and your team have delivered.
