Water trucks being filled at a depot outside of Port Au Prince, Haiti.  Since the earthquake last January, fresh water has been being delivered through the country, capital and various tent city camps by water trucks under the auspices of DINEPA, the government agency charged with developing infrastructure for providing safe, potable water.  The trucks fill their tanks on a nearly continuous basis.  The process which is extremely expensive is expected to be phased out towards the end of 2010, making the need for other solutions for provide access to clean water more urgent.  An outbreak of cholera originating in the Artibonite region north of Haiti's capital has heightened health concerns related to water and sanitation for the nation.
