The system was installed Jan. 6, 2014 in one of the worst hit areas near Tacloban City in the Palo, Leyte Province of the Philippines.
Parker representatives provided on-site training to local Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH-WATSAN) Red Cross staff who will maintain the system to accommodate ongoing water needs.
Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) made land fall on Nov. 8, 2013 as a category five "super typhoon" and displaced 4.1 million people with a death toll surpassing 6,000.
Basic service restoration is still in progress with many outlying areas still without power and water.
The Parker system will serve as a primary source of water production for the Leyte Province, providing up to 20,000 gallons of safe, potable water per day from a fresh water canal.
The water will be distributed regionally with water tanker trucks and approximately 40 strategically located water distribution bladders supplied by the Red Cross.
