PANAMA / Panama City, Panama
Unusual weather patterns and the rapid urbanization of Panamá City have stressed Panamá’s ability to provide water to citizens. Those most affected are developing communities outside the city, where problems with the water utility IDAAN mean an inconsistent supply of potable water. This project's goal was to assist IDAAN by developing a rationing plan to supply adequate water to each community. We successfully determined the population of each community by compiling and analyzing previously collected demographic information and by gathering new census information. Another IQP team gathered topographical information, and together we developed and presented the rationing plan to stakeholders.
