Water Project

The EWB Response

Students from the University of Maryland, College Park collaborated with the Comite por Mejoras, an elected group of community representatives, and FISE, a local governmental organization that conducts water and sanitation projects in the province, to establish and coordinate the sanitation project for Uduzhapa and Conseco. In January 2006, engineering professionals, students, and a faculty advisor completed the assessment trip. During this time, soil and water data was collected and the members of the communities officially agreed to work with EWB-UMCP to complete the implementation.
