Civil Engineering Goal

The Civil Engineering contribution to the Merrimack/Project Medishare partnership is collaborate with the community members of Marmont to strengthen their efforts to increase the delivery of clean water to the town. 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.
