Goal

Create a system that reliably provides water from the river to 11 Santiago del Coyolito farms for irrigation. Educate the community on sustainable agricultural practices.

Timeline

May 2018: Conduct assessment trip to survey the land, connect with the community, and obtain geographic estimates of each farm’s proximity, as well as its elevation difference from the river. Access project scope.

Aug. 2018: Brainstorm and evaluate potential design solution.

May/Dec. 2019: Depending on the determined project scope, implement a partial or full solution.
