Tres Hermanos Installation Report

The team comprised of 4 students from the Norhtwestern University chapter of Engineering for a Sustainable World (ESW) and Michel Maupoux from Green Empowerment, was on site for 4 weeks ending July 20, 2010, to participate in the construction of a dual ram pump system in Tres Hermanos. The project was successfully completed in that time.

As I was out of commission for two weeks due to dengue fever, the students did a great job of participating and documenting the whole installation, showing that installing the pumps themselves is only a part of the work. This particular system was comprised of a network of pipes for lifting water and for its distribution, made of 6km (~4 miles) of pipes.

Attached is the system construction report filed by the students, with photos showing the hard work and its results.

Enjoy, and thanks for your support.
