Abstract

This project improved the old and overwhelmed wastewater system of Fundación Paraguaya’s Escuela Agrícola in Paraguay. Site assessments, interviews, and system integrity analysis were used and water usage data was collected to generate maps of the current structures and develop plans for a new system. The system fits the campus’s needs and includes plans for proper maintenance, an ecological filter to treat wastewater, and a composting system to create fertilizer from solid remains. These plans provide the school with an integrated and sustainable waste treatment system.
