ABOUT

Our chapter was given the opportunity to aid the village of Nyansakia on January 2019. Our project goals are to bring clean, reliable drinking water to the community.

We've returned from our assessment trip with valuable information to aid us in the designing process of the project

 

ASSESSMENT TRIP

WATER TESTING

Nyansakia has four springs that they mainly rely on for water. All four of these springs have e-coli as well as various other bacteria.

GPS MAPPING

To service the community properly we need an accurate map of the village. During our assessment trip we took GPS points around the border of the community as well as various important pathways that can be utilized in the design process.

SOIL TESTING

Our project will certainly need tanks to hold the water. Soil tests were done in main points that could be utilized for distribution. These tests tell us the compression strength of the soil, so we can safely place the right sized tank in that location.

A life of significance is about serving those who need your gifts, your leadership, your purpose.
