Engineers Without Borders: Photos of Water Containment System Construction

Here are some more pictures from our trip to Corral de Piedras, Honduras:
This is what our site looked like when we got to Corral de Piedras. As you can see we had a lot of digging to do.


Here is the foundation right before we started to pour concrete. You can see the re-bar in a grid pattern. The rocks are to ensure that the re-bar stays 3 inches above the ground.


Here are some of the community members after our wednesday meeting when we gave out the water filters (blue buckets). The community members were very happy after this meeting.

This picture below shows one of the tanks that we are going to put on the foundation when we complete the system.

Here is Arturo, one of the community members, putting the finishing touches on the foundation. The hooks that you see will be used to tie the tank down and secure it to the foundation. They are tied to the re-bar that we put down in a grid pattern

The last picture shows the Mayor, Rigoberto Villatoro, signing our Memorandum of Understanding, which was signed by the mayor, the community, EWB-USC and ADEC outlining the responsibilities of each group with respect to this project.
