The University of Florida EWB chapter has been partnered with Aripalca for four years, in hopes of helping improve their irrigation system. This system suffers water loss due to damage from frequent flooding. The main goal of this project is to repair the channel walls, therefore strengthening water flow.
Increasing the water will allow a stronger crop yield as well as help equally redistribute water amongst the community. The team is also in the process of building a Gabion wall to further protect the channel from damage.
