This project designed and implemented a sustainable treatment system for the wastewater at the Escuela Agrícola of the Fundación Paraguaya. Using site analysis, interviews, and water quality testing, the original state of the system was determined. From there a plan was made to repurpose an old pool into a ecological filter for the treatment of 11,000 liters of water a day, over 25% of the total wastewater the school produces. In conjunction with the pool, floating treatment wetlands were made to clean up the existing wastewater pond. Recommendations for future treatment and maintenance are included within this report.
