Our Team

NorthWater worked for Caritas-Austria earlier this year and provide on-time, accurate services. Thus I highly recommend NorthWater, the team is highly dedicated and goes the extra mile in providing excellent services. They are not intimidated by challenging or remote terrain and don’t mind getting soaking wet from either sweat or rain. In addition they remain one of the few water companies operating in Haiti that is capable of delivering what it offers, which is an opportunity to dramatically increase the probability of finding water… if it is there.
