Who owns a water project once it’s completed?

DIGDEEP projects are generally community-run — built on community land with direct public participation in every level of decision-making, both before and after construction.

Occasionally, DIGDEEP and our partners construct projects on the grounds of schools, churches, clinics or other community/charitable organizations. In these cases, projects fall under the administration of the operating entity, which has committed to actively engaging the local community.

In some cases DIGDEEP installs equipment in private homes. In these cases, the equipment is owned and maintained by the homeowner, who actively participates in building the project and is trained to care for it.
