Description : In recent years, the ICRC has completed several projects for the improvement of water infrastructure. These projects, aimed at benefiting the host community and refugees, were implemented in collaboration with the Bekaa Water Establishment (BWE) and municipalities.
The projects were implemented in Zahle, Hermel and Chamsine. In Zahle, the new pumping station has increased the availability of water significantly : 60% of the population, 31,500 residents and 8,000 people from Syria currently staying in the area, now have access to water, as opposed to 36% in the past. The renovated pumping stations in Hermel, and the new control panels and networks, enable water to be pumped and stored in a new 2,000-cubic metre reservoir that serves more than 35,000 people. In Chamsine, three high-capacity wells equipped by the ICRC supply 250 litres of water per second to the pumping station ; over 106,000 people benefit.
