Community Water Systems

  • CEO: Ernest Blatchley

Purdue students from seven different academic units, including Civil Engineering are involved in a service-learning project that takes an interdisciplinary, holistic approach to water quality and water supply problems in developing countries. Specifically, participants design and implement community-scale water treatment systems for use in small towns, such as Las Canas, a remote village on the northern side of the island.
