Near Rio Blanco. The pipe from the spring to the village has very little overall slope (a record 0.2%), yet it has several large local elevation differences. It provided a severe test for APLV's unique design method for the treatment of air pockets in the pipe. Nevertheless, this gravity flow system has always worked perfectly. It was the first project for which the community has protected and reforested the spring watershed in order to prevent contamination and drying up of the water source.
