This project is focused in the Pasco region in Peru. The community currently has access to a few streams and water sources, but no access to clean water. The goal of the project is to establish a clean water source that is accessible through the wet and dry season. The team traveled on their first assessment trip in September 2019.
This project is located in the Quiche region in Guatemala. The community goal involves tearing down and old school deemed unsafe and inadequate for the community and building a new one. The EWB-MN team has just returned from their assessment trip in March 2019.
This project is located in the Santa Ana region in El Salvador. The community consists mostly of hard-worked farmers. The current gravity-fed water distribution system that serves the community often succumbs to high pressures and malfunctions often. The EWB-MN chapter designed a solution involving pressure reduction valves (PRVs) to alleviate the pressure. These valves were shipped with engineering plans to the community and installed by plumbers in the fall of 2018.
This is the newest project with EWB-MN and currently the only local project. The small town of Colfax, WI has few community gathering places. The Colfax Municipal Building, which houses the public library, police station, and community theater, has been the primary place for the community to get together for decades. Due to a leaking basement and a lack of accessibility, parts of the building are unusable. The team is working with the community to restore the building and ensure it continues to be an important part of Colfax.
