Civil Engineering in Haiti
Civil Engineering Goal
The Civil Engineering contribution to the Merrimack/Project Medishare partnership is to deliver clean water to the town of Casse. The objective of our trip is to obtain required background information so that our students can design a clean water delivery system.
Specifically our Civil Engineering students will:
- Identify the location, condition and purity of existing wells and natural water sources.
- Determine the size and socioeconomics of the town to estimate water demand.
- Begin to design a method to get clean water to the people of Casse.
