THE 2020 GEORGE K. DAVIS AWARD WAS PRESENTED TO

THE ROTARY CLUB OF CENTENNIAL FOR THEIR WATERRICO PROJECT

 
1200 in-home water filters were constructed by our club members in Puerto Rico between September 8th-14th with the help of the Moca and Aguada, PR Rotary Clubs and local residents. The impact of these filters means over 3600 Moca residents ( 9% of the population) now have safe water to drink. Special appreciation goes to our in-country Adminstrator, Julio Rivera and Moca Mayor, Kiko Avil├ęs.
With the recent earthquakes in January of 2020, the WaterRico Project allocated 100 of the undistributed (~200) filters from Phase 3 for emergency assistance to towns outside of Moca. These 100 filters will be used as community filters and used by many citizens who do not have clean water due to widespread power outages and no running water.
