Abstract:

Island nations present special challenges when it comes to wastewater and stormwater infrastructure. The remoteness of the site location, geographical considerations, and the lack of immediately available technical help all contribute to a challenging situation when doing major system upgrades or new installations. All of these factors will be examined in the context of a recent lift station project in the village of Fatu Ma Futi, American Samoa. The objective of this paper is to educate readers regarding the unique problems in manpower, technology and geography that face many island nations seeking to improve their wastewater infrastructure, and to inform them about potential solutions.
