Puca School

Puca Chicta is located in the Amazon region of Ecuador, beside the heavily used Napo river.  The school, pictured above, serves nearly 80 children.  

EWB Portland has recently initiated a project to address drinking water quality issues in this community,  During the team's upcoming assessment trip, the project team will confirm that a local spring is capable of supplying clean and adequate drinking water. The team will assess the appropriate technology for pumping, storing and distributing the water to/within the village and design a simple treatment system, if necessary.
