Children in the Iraqi village of al-Radathiya crowd around one of two sources of water for their approximately 11,000 population village, east of Najaf. This hole fills up with water from a pump the few times electricity is provided to the village. The water has left many of the villagers with cholera and chronic diarrhea. According to their $680 million, no-bid, contract, Bechtel Corporation is responsible for providing potable water to southern Iraq.
