Chaguarloma is a community in Ecuador near Quito that is divided into two zones, the high and the low. The biggest issues are in the lower zone, where many families live. Currently, there is only a water catchment system near a water spring, which is not accessible, especially to the families living in the lower section of the community. Because of the difficulty accessing water, the community has not been able to grow enough food for the community and has issues with poor sanitation and health challenges. Engineers in Action hopes to plan and install a water system that will allow the many families in the community access to clean, safe water.
