Summary

With the increase in tourism and demand for water supply for local farming there is an urgent need for water management and conservation efforts in the Cusco area. This project is focused on Water Conservation to improve the lifestyles of the communities that live at the source, the Cusco inhabitants, as well as those that visit this amazing World Heritage.

Challenge

The micro-basin Piuray Corimarca is the water's source of nearly 40% of Cusco. The main economic activities around the Piuray Lake are agriculture and sheep farming; both have a direct impact to the lake. The main problem is water diminution from the growing pressure of the Cusco Water Utility to fulfil the needs of a growing tourist population and new inhabitants.

Solution

INFILTRATION DITCHES: They retain water, stop erosion and avoid landslides. This requires digging ditches. PROTECTION OF SPRINGS: Protect the spring by building fences. This requires digging for poles and to stretch mesh. TERRACES RECOVERY: this strategy has the potential to restore areas for agriculture. FORESTATION: Repopulate fields with native species. This requires cleaning up, habilitate the soil, and plant in tree nurseries. CONSERVATION: Create sites for environmental discussions

Long-Term Impact

In the long run, this project hopes to generate environmental awareness about the scarcity of Peru's natural resources, promote green infrastructure, mindfully conserve water and contribute sustainability to Cusco and its surrounding areas.
