Assessment Trip

Over winter break, Civil Engineering majors, Parker Midura, Maeve Carlson, Jack Pacent, and Samantha Anderson along with Mentor Robert Sypitkowski traveled to El Descanso to determine if a single or multiple sources in the area could supply the water for the community. The team gathered data on all potential water sources, pumping requirements, and rainwater catchment. In addition to strengthening their partnership with El Descanso, the travel team left with a changed world view and a passion to build a better one.
