Rapid urbanization paired with outdated census information has made upgrading water infrastructure difficult in Burunga, Panama. We conducted a survey of 296 households in three Burunga communities and generated census data on demographics and water facilities which allowed us to forecast water demand in the upcoming years. The analysis will help Panama’s water authority improve their water distribution system in Burunga by implementing municipal water infrastructure and a wastewater management system in the next two years.
