Napaskiak is a Yupik Eskimo village situated on the banks of the Kuskokwim River, just 3 miles downstream from Bethel.
Napaskiak has eliminated honey buckets from the village by having Cowater's Flush Tank and Haul® system installed in every home, providing running water and flush toilets. Other water and sanitation projects made possible with financial assistance from Village Safe Water, EPA, USDA-RD, and ADOT include the construction of:
A new sewage lagoon with a connecting service boardwalk driveway
A new washeteria and water treatment plant
A second water treatment plant
A robust system of boardwalks throughout the village
A sewage dumping station and a sewage force main to the new sewage lagoon
