The “Junta Vecinal Plan 700” is an informal settlement in process of regularization, which is located in an area of high topographic risk and did not have sewerage network and appropriate sanitary structures (bathroom and septic tank) before the implementation of the project.

The project proposed to improve the sanitation in the area as well prevent landslides and topographic collapses in the most vulnerable areas of the neighbourhood through the construction of 25 bathrooms with septic tanks, resulting of the recommendations of previous technical study done on the ground. The most obvious problems faced during the execution of the project were the topography of the land and the soil hardness, and since the houses were located in sloping areas, it has made di cult the activi- ty of excavation. However, the NGO succeeded in overcoming this di culty together with the families.
