Project Manager: Juan Chinchilla

While an official assessment trip has not been completed, the team has sent representatives from FIEA to deliver water filters and to teach good hygiene practices to the community. The team’s goal is to build a water treatment system that is both easy to use and portable due to the dam that is scheduled to be built in the Beni River which will likely force the community to relocate.
