This project started in 2009 aims to provide the coverage in drinking water for the next twenty-five years of the entire population of the town of Saint Marc, of the suburbs and all locations along the line of adduction.

Before this project, the existing network just fed the population of the city center three days per week for two hours a day. Today there are about 60,000 people benefit from the success of this project. In 2015, this will be 120,000 people who will benefit of the success of this project.

The work consisted in the construction of two structures in the town of Gilbert (Haut Saint-Marc), the implementation of 12 km of pipes of 12 inch ductile iron and PVC (adduction), the construction of two reservoirs (one of 1,700 m3 to Pivertetu and one of 160 m3 to La Garenne) ,the installation of 3500 new branches and 26 kiosks that sale of water, among others.

The work took 18 months. The firm Lysa manages the network of Saint Marc since August 2009 and continues its expansion to increase the numbers of beneficiaries and develop public service of drinking water on Saint Marc and the surrounding communities. 33 people working in the management of this system to provide the inhabitants of Saint-Marc a good quality water in sufficient quantity. The network currently has 3,890 connections with meter and 2750 meter free. The tariff applied to metered connections is 62, 50 gourds/m3, while a monthly fee of 220 gourds is required for subscribers whose connection is not equipped with this device. Work is underway to rehabilitate the old system and regulating package subscribers (without meter), but to date, residents have drinking water eight hours per day.
