Texas  A&M  University;  San  Mateo     •  •  •  •  San  Mateo  is  an  impoverished  community,  listed  by  the  Belize   Red  Cross  as  the  most  impoverished/at  risk  community  in  the   country   The  land  in  actuality  is  a  Tdal  estuary  densely  populated  with   mangroves,  which  is  more  ouen  than  not  under  several  feet  of   water   Approximately  150-­‐180  “homes”  exist  in  San  Mateo  on  sTlts   with  no  running  water,  electricity  or  sanitaTon.  Each  “home”   is  reached  by  walking  a  series  of  elevated  “London  bridges,”  a   precarious  system  of  scrap  lumber  walkways  generally  no   wider  than  22”  with  no  handrails   The  community  is  in  desperate  need  of  affordable,  potable   running  water,  development  of  a  sanitaTon  system,  pathway   improvement,  roadways,  and  a  land  fill,  among  other  needs.   EWB-­‐USA,  TAMU  intends  to  undertake  some  of  these  projects  
  • 50. 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.
  • 51. Belize  Water  Sanitation  Project     San  Mateo,  Belize Christopher  Kirkland  and  Briana  Herrmann    
  • 54. 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  
  • 55. 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.  
  • 56. 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    
  • 60. 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.    
  • 61. •  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.    
  • 62. August Pine Ridge, Belize School Building Update
  • 63. Cleveland  State  EWB  project   •  The  new  school  building  provides  addiTonal  space  for  the   current  overcrowded  school  that  serves  approximately   450  students  and  serves  as  a  hurricane  shelter  for  the   general  community   •  A  project-­‐specific  assessment  trip  was  completed  in   May  2010  and  the  floor  plan  for  the  school  was   finalized  and  approved  by  the  community   •  Data  on  building  material  quality  and  availability  was   gathered  along  with  material  prices   •  Detailed  site  soil  samples  were  collected  and  shipped   to  CSU’s  campus  for  laboratory  tests.  Soil   characterisTcs  were  incorporated  into  the  school   building’s  foundaTon  design   •  Soil  characterisTcs  for  a    leach  field  for  the  school   building’s  sepTc  system  were  evaluated      
  • 64.

  • 67. CSU Project Manager/ Site Engineer and APR School Project Committee Chairman Julio Magaña at the completion of the project.
  • 68. Classroom tiled and ready for use. The door is only open when the building is utilized as a hurricane shelter by the community. Similar doors allow passage throughout the building in safety.
  • 69. Not everybody could be listed. We wish to also thank BASF, Parker Hannifin Company, and Belize Open Source, to name a few more.
  • 70. While in Belize the leaking roof on the existing school was repaired. No more leaks. The black of the roof is the build up of ash from the burning of sugar cane. Because of the slope on the new school, each passing rain helps to keep the roof clean.
  • 71. Anemometer installed on the roof of the other school building. Data collected by the students of APR is emailed to CSU engineering students working closely with Dr. Majid Rashidi and his wind amplification turbine system to properly size the wind turbines.
  • 72. CSU Students Amy Kalabon (left) and Alice Summerville (Right) level stone for the leach field on the school property.
  • 73. Completion of pipe runs to septic tanks behind the school. At this time the tanks are sealed and the pipes all covered.
  • 74. Distribution box walls poured, top was added the next day and everything is now covered with fill material.
  • 75. The leach field with all the pipes set awaiting the final cover of 18 inches of soil.
  • 83. 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.
  • 84. CSU  next  steps   • The team was awarded the 2013 NCEES Engineering Award for Connecting Professional Practice and Education, $25,000 grand prize for its submission, Design, Funding, and Construction of the August Pine Ridge School/Hurricane Shelter in Belize – the funds will be used to repay repay part of the university loans for construction costs. • The August Pine Ridge Water Board has done a pilot program with water meters to prepare for metering and use-based fees to encourage water conservation and reduce operating costs. • Students continue working with Dr. Majid Rashidi and his wind amplification turbine system to examine the feasibility of wind energy. Solar is also being considered.

  • 86. Blanca Torres, principal of the August Pine Ridge school, wrote, “The aerial photo mapping seems very interesting. I shared with my children and sisters the images of our village … and they just loved them. … I welcome these opportunities where I can involve my students in new learning experiences. I am very interested in exposing them through your mapping project. We feel pride in having our community appear in internet pages and more if we are involved in getting those images.”
