Syria - Deir Ez Zour issue of oil refining contaminating water supplies.

Monica Ramos forwarded this email to me as I had spoken to her about the issue of oil polluting the water supplies for the Deir Ez Zour governorate in Syria where CARE is working with a local partner. We are planning to distribute wash kits consisting of Aquatabs and some flocculating/chlorination kits.

However, our concern is that people have been refining illegally oil in their backyards and we are getting many reports of the land, water , etc polluted from the oil. The people get their water from the river, which we are told is polluted with the oil and oil runoff.

I am trying to figure out what is the best way to support the people so that they can ensure their water is safe to drink

1 - What type of WASH kits should be distributing? Is Aquatabs appropriate? What type of filters should be used? Can you recommend filter kits that we could use and distribute that would be appropriate for this situation?

2- What information should we include so that people know how to properly treat their water?

3- What issues or questions should we be asking to ensure we have a proper understanding of the oil pollution in the water?

4- What is the health risks of the oil in water that people are drinking? what are the risks to the agricultural land?

Thank you for your assistance
