Engineering updates


Two engineering volunteers arrived in Antigua on Saturday night, and so we spent Sunday morning briefing them on the situation in Paquip, where they will be working all week. They were anxious to get moving, and so left for Tecpan after the meetings ended. After being installed in their hotel they were able to make it out to Paquip to meet the local water committee and other leadership and to begin scouting.

From these meetings as well as their observations, the decision was made to begin working immediately on an emergency temporary water distribution system for the half of the community that was cut off from the water lines.
