Millennium Water Alliance (MWA) and WaterAid Nicaragua conducted applied research to measure water supply service levels provided simultaneously by household rainwater harvesting systems and multiple other sources of water in the municipality of Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua. Their goal was to better understand the quality of service for different kinds of water sources as well as how people perceived the different sources.
