  • Engineers provide water, hope for Guatemalan village

    Oct 17, 2011

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Day after day, families in the small mountaintop village of Visibakvitz, Guatemala, about 6,000 feet above sea level, would travel on foot, downhill for about a mile to wash their clothes and dishes and retrieve drinking and cooking water from a shared, spring-fed water tank and washing station. Then, carrying children, dishes, heavy wet clothes and pails of water, they made their way back up the steep mountainside to their homes and begin the cycle again. That was the situation until a project by Engineers Without Borders - USA (EWB) Jacksonville, Fla. Professional Chapter successfully brought clean water directly to 25 households, a school and a church. The fledgling chapter, which had chosen to focus on water and sanitation, conducted an assessment trip to the Nebaj region of Guatemala in 2009 to collaborate with a non-governmental organization, Agua Para La Salud (APS). Together they selected projects in three communities -- Visibakvitz, Xepium and Xevitz -- all of which were priorities and well-suited to the chapter's capabilities and potential funds. The projects represent a five-year commitment to the selected communities, to design and implement low-cost, small-scale, replicable and sustainable engineering solutions.
