MAKASSAR, Indonesia, Nov. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Foundation's (IWSH) Community Plumbing Challenge (CPC) program has completed its latest installment, a Design Week project in the coastal village of Kampung Nelayan Untia. An intensive four-day assignment concluded Thursday with a presentation to Untia community authorities and local residents. All Design Team members were involved, and they presented a proposal for a new public facility for Untia village that features new toilets, a new handwashing area, a new water supply system, and a new wastewater system. Badan Standardisasi Nasional (BSN), the Indonesian standardization body, and IWSH will take the proposals, which were met with support by the local village leaders, to relevant government departments for final approval. It is anticipated this will set off a process toward an ambitious construction project around May 2020, after the passing of the annual wet season in the region. Dates and schedule for the proposed construction project next year will be announced as necessary approvals
