Project Update- The Los Sanchez TeamThe Los Sanchez project has had a busy semester preparing for their upcoming construction trip in August. So far this year, they have finished a detailed analysis of possible designs for the water system. Some options that were considered included building another tank and using additional water sources to minimize piping costs and head loss due to long sections of piping. This analysis was submitted to EWB National and recently approved!
Now the chapter is finalizing the the details of the chosen design. They have completed models for a new well housing, a new valve box, and numerous tap stands. In addition, the team has used both excel and WaterGEMS to design a functional piping system that delivers water to the entire community. The design has been submitted to EWB national and the chapter is anxiously waiting for approval. Stay tuned for updates on our continued progress!
