Paraxaj, Guatemala

EWB-UMN Paraxaj, Guatemala Project

Background

TankThe Guatemala team recently finished installing a municipal water distribution system for the ~600 community members living in Xaquin Sanahi. This included a trip in summer 2015 to install a new supply line, and rehabilitate aging springboxes and storage tanks and the recent summer 2016 trip included installing final delivery lines. Continued work is being done year round with outreach and educating the members of Xaquin Sanahi.

The Guatemala project is beginning work on a new project in Paraxaj, Guatemala in Spring 2017. This project will look to develop a water storage and distribution system. Initial assessment trips will begin in May 2017.
