In order to ensure that WASHMobile is developed in a smart, systematic, and conscientious manner, we are conducting a five-year pilot program of the system to identify and fix any problems before looking to expand the technology.  The pilot consists of three phases:
 

PHASE
1

Three-month trial of data collection methods to resolve remaining questions concerning system design

Status: Completed May 2015 - June 2015
 

Phase
2

Yearlong data collection period to accurately assess fluctuations in water quality with small scale information dissemination tests

Status: To be completed January 2017 - January 2018
 

Phase
3

Two year period of full system roll-out to observe impact on water-borne illness rates in cities featuring the system

Status: To be completed January 2018 - January 2020
