Travis and Laurent on Basin Simbe Reservoir

EWB Portland repairs team lead Travis Hultin and Tout Bagay trip support lead Laurent Auguste take a moment to chat on the top of the Basin Simbe reservoir.  This reservoir serves a major portion of the Les Anglais community.  In February 2009, the EWB Portland team worked with community members to restore flow to this reservoir by repairing pipes that had been broken or clogged during the August 2008 hurricanes. 

In June 2009, the team plans to install a cholorinator on this reservoir and work with community plumbers to continue the work to repair the system and restore the flow of water to town.  The team will also continue its assessment efforts including home health surveys, mapping, water testing and meetings with other organizations working in Les Anglais.
