  45. 45. Randy Nelson, project lead, wrote, We'd be happy to work with you and share information and experiences in Belize as our project develops. To give you an update on our project, we are currently preparing for an assessment trip to San Mateo in January. We expect that we will be working with the community to develop a source of fresh water, but we're keeping a somewhat open mind since this will be our first trip. Our tentative schedule is to try to complete our first project by next Christmas, but that is very much dependent on this first assessment trip. We'll be better able to give you a timeline once we get back. As for fundraising, we are trying to raise $20,000 for the implementation next year. I'm attaching a few photos of the community, and I can send more if you'd like.

  47. 47. The  Team!  
  48. 48. The  Community  
  49. 49. Water  Update   •  Many   changes   to   the   community   have  been  made  over  the  summer   leaving   a   need   for   a   water   filtration   system   no   longer   necessary   •  The  local  Rotary  Club  of  Belize  has   provided   the   community   with   200   Sawyer   water   filters,   which   is   sufficient  enough  to  provide  each   home  with  clean  drinking  water   •  Training   for   these   filters   is   currently   in   progress.   During   our   assessment   trip   this   January   2013   we  hope  to  be  able  to  participate   in   helping   distribute   the   filters   to   members  of  the  community  
  50. 50. A  New  Need   •  •  Contamination   of   the   community's   water  lines  through  leaked  sewage  has   caused   unsanitary   living   conditions.   Additionally,   waste   from   vault   toilets   has   run   out   into   the   stagnant   water   surrounding   the   community   (see   photo).   The   previous   assessment   trip   confirmed   coliform   contamination   in   the   water   lines   as   a   result   of   this   practice.     A   septic   tank   for   the   community   of   San   Mateo   will   provide   the   residents   with   an  improved  means  to  dispose  of  their   waste   which   will   overall   provide   clean   water   to   their   homes   and   standing   water  throughout  the  community.  This   will   reduce   the   amounts   of   fatalities   and   diseases   that   are   currently   found   within  the  community.  
  51. 51. Household  Septic  System   •  We  are  currently  arranging  plans  for  our  assessment  trip  this  January   2013  to  scope  the  site  for  a  potential  household  septic  system     •  A  local  sanitation  engineer  has  provided  us  with  a  septic  tank  design   that   was   intended   for   mainland   conditions.   However,   due   to   San   Mateo's   environmental   challenges,   this   design   will   not   suffice   under   the   areas   mangrove   swamp.   Therefore,   we   anticipate   a   mound   septic   system   Texas  A&M  has  closed  out  their  program  in  Belize,  primarily  due   to  lack  of  community  capacity  to  successfully    partner  with  EWB

  53. 53. New  this  year   Jordan  Machtelinckx,  Belize  Program  Coordinator,  wrote:     •  We  are  currently  solidifying  our  partnership  with  the  community  of   the  Valley  of  Peace  outside  Belmopan,  and  our  third  partner   organizaJon,  the  Ministry  of  Agriculture  (located  in  Central  Farm).       •  We  are  currently  working  together  on  the  documentaJon  to  get  the   project  approved  by  EWB  USA  so  that  we  can  begin  our  assessment   work  for  future  implementaJons.       •  The  project  will  pertain  to  agricultural  water  supply.    
  54. 54. •  Specifically,  the  community  would  like  to  construct  a  system  to   capture  water  from  the  nearby  Belize  River  and  divert  it  to  a   storage  tank.  From  there  they  envision  a  gravity  distribuJon   system  to  get  the  water  to  the  nearby  farm  plots,  slightly  downhill.   This  would  provide  sufficient  water  for  year-­‐round  irrigaJon  and   thus  greater  crop  yield  and  resale  potenJal  in  the  nearby  markets   of  Belmopan  and  San  Ignacio.       •  The  greatest  design  consideraJon  is  how  to  get  water  up  gradient   from  the  river  to  the  tank:  gas-­‐powered  pumps  are  very  expensive   to  operate.  Hydro-­‐ram  technologies  have  been  menJoned,  but  the   feasibility  of  this  opJon  depends  greatly  on  the  environments  and   available  energy  gradients  in  the  flowing  water  -­‐  we'll  need  to   address  these  factors  in  our  iniJal  assessments.

CSU  next  steps   Norb Delatte, faculty advisor indicated the team expects to travel in mid-March ‘14: • Water treatment remains a priority, but has been delayed as the team addresses humidity problems in the new classroom building. Improved ventilation and other options are being considered. •  The team continues work with the water board and the community project committee to develop water treatment options, including a pilot point-of-use system. Received a $10k grant toward the system vs a preliminary estimate of $50k.
