The U.S. Technology approach for meeting this challenge is The U.S. Technology for International Environmental Solutions (U.S. TIES) program was initiated in 1994 to match pressing environmental problems in other countries with the suppliers of proven and cost-effective environmental technologies in the U.S. The Agency's researchers developed partnerships with government and health officials as well as utility operators at proposed sites with the following goals: thoroughly assessing the contamination risks to drinking water supplies; considering current and future drinking water needs at each proposed site; matching most appropriate, low-cost drinking water treatment technologies with specific demonstration sites; objectively brokering the purchase and operation of chosen technologies at the various sites; assisting in start-up and operation of the selected 'demonstation' treatment technologies; monitoring demonstration technology effectiveness; and assessment available health records before and after treatment technologies begin operation to evaluate the positive impact of installed demonstration treatment devices. Descriptions of demonstration projects in Ecuador, Mexico and China are included.
