Uduzhapa and Conseco are located in the Andes Mountain Range in the Azuay Province of Ecuador. The combined population of the communities is approximately 180 people living in 40 separate houses. The people of Uduzhapa and Conseco consume water from open irrigation ditches that are contaminated by human and animal waste. A local government agency, FISE, is in the process of providing the communities with potable water. However, in order to eliminate the poor health conditions of the villagers, a functional sanitation system was needed along with the drinkable water supply.
