Without access to clean water, the community of Cerro Verde struggles with many health and sanitation issues. This community is very eager to work with Engineers in Action to install a water distribution system that will allow the entire community to water their crops, have healthy drinking water and much more. According to the EIA project manager, the dedication of the community to seeing this project to fruition is because to them, water is life.

Community: Chaguarloma, Ecuador

Project Stage: Partners Needed
Population Benefited: 550 people

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.

Casa Quemada

Community: Casa Quemada, Ecuador

Project Stage: Partners Needed
Population Benefited: 1,610 people

Casa Quemada is located in the Cotopaxi Province of Ecuador, high in the mountains. The local community is in desperate need of better access to water, which will allow them to grow enough crops to support the community, something they currently struggle with. A rudimentary system designed by locals is currently in place, however community leaders recognize that the current system is not sufficient. It does not provide access to all community members and it does not include any sort of storage capacity. Engineers in Action plans to put a water system in place that will mainly service the most densely populated, central area of the community, where the school and health center are located, and possibly expand the system later.

Community: Yuka, Bolivia
Coordinates:  15°38’6.49″S  69° 8’7.83″W
Project Stage: Partners Needed
Population Benefited: 450 Families

Residents in Yucka, Bolivia currently utilize the nearest open field as their primary restroom, resulting in disease in a number of the community inhabitants. Engineers in Action is seeking volunteers to travel to the community and assess, design and implement a solution such as eco latrines that will prevent the local children and families from illness.

The local community is knowledgeable of common sanitation protocol, yet lacks the infrastructure needed to practice them. Nearly 500 individuals will benefit from this project, which will be maintained and supported by the local community. Their ongoing involvement increases their capacity while simultaneously ensuring the implementations remain active, usable and beneficial.

Population Benefited: 1,300 people

25 de diciembre is a community in Ecuador that struggles with access to sanitary water. The women in the community must travel very long distances to fetch water and shared with EIA staff that water access is an urgent need. Community members previously developed their own rudimentary water system that mostly consisted of multiple hoses connected together to attempt to bring water from a spring far away into the community. Unfortunately, this solution did not prove beneficial to most of the community and did not provide a long-term solution to the issue. Engineers in Action is working to identify a permanent water source along with options for storage and distribution. Community members will be trained on maintenance and upkeep to ensure the implementations remain efficient and usable.
