International – Bolivia
We are excited to embark on a water related project in Bolivia in partnership with Engineers in Action (a local non-profit humanitarian group). In this 5 year commitment we will:
- Identify a new water source for a high needs village in the Bolivian Andes.
- Dig wells or construct a spring box.
- Design a potable water conveyance system.
- Create a curriculum to help ensure the longevity of the works for many years.
Regional – Navajo Nation
Each semester we have a reoccurring project we do in collaboration with the Greater Salt Lake Engineers Without Borders chapter and the Navajo Nation in the Four Corners area of Utah.
In the past we have worked on anything from rain-water harvesters and spring boxes, to installing handicap bathroom accessories. We also broke ground on a water conveyance works in the of Fall 2018.
The trips are usually 3 to 4 days of camping, working, eating, socializing… We think it is a worthwhile project – one we are lucky to be involved with.
