Clean water program

Clean water and proper hygiene are critical to curbing the spread of disease.

In the Cepu block of Indonesia, many residents do not have easy or reliable access to clean water during the dry season. ExxonMobil Cepu Limited, a subsidiary of ExxonMobil, is committed to assisting its neighbors. Together with the community and non-profit partners, ExxonMobil Cepu Limited launched a community-based clean water program in 2008. To help make the program more sustainable, the community established a committee to manage the budget, construct and monitor water facilities, and handle water distribution. For example, in Bojonegoro, East Java, a new water tower serves as the key source of potable water, which is distributed to households through a pipeline network. To date, this program has benefited more than 25,000 community members through the establishment of more than 56 kilometers of water pipeline in 20 villages in East and Central Java. ExxonMobil Cepu Limited also supports a program that has provided latrines for 4,200 community members in 15 villages, and recruited more than 200 women to lead educational campaigns focused on teaching community members the importance of proper sanitation and hygiene practices.
