Ecuador Clean Water Supply

by Engineers Without Borders - Pittsburgh
Jun 1, 2012

EWB Project Update

Water is pumped to the storage tank next to the Tingo Community Center with help of the Ecuadorian NGO, HCJB! Approximately 10 houses have tap-sands and water connected to them at the this time. The remaining houses will be connected to the water system over the next few weeks. Thanks to everyone! It was indeed a great team effort to get to this point.

Please refer to the attached photos of water flowing into the tank, source intake, sedimentation -pump tank, and the ribbon cutting ceremony.

An Operation and Maintenance Manual is also being developed and being translated into Spanish!
