Conclusion of Cabuya Arriba Water System Project – Panama

This project has been completed under the direction of Peace Corps Volunteer Christopher Brown. To read about the beginning of the project, CLICK HERE.

The project was to repair the aqueduct bringing water to the community.

Christopher reports:

We are at the height of our rainy season and the repairs made last April have proved to be a big success. The funds for this project were used to buy tubes, tools, cement, and labor. The result was the replacement of damaged tubes and the creation of a small diverting dam at the water source.

This diverting dam stops the creek from overflowing into the community’s water source. The result has been consistent and cleaner water for the town’s members and the school. In turn, this has led to a healthier community and environment.

We are grateful to Christopher for completing this important community infrastructure project and again wish to thank The Soneva SLOW LIFE Trust for providing the funding.
