The project studied water quality and supply in Cerrito, Paraguay. The study included three groups: the Junta de Saneamiento, the local water board, Qom communities, and the Escuela Agrícola. Home test kits assessed water quality in ten wells managed by these groups. The team produced schematics of the water pipelines systems of both the Junta de Saneamiento and the Escuela Agrícola, a maintenance guide for the Junta de Saneamiento, and provided new pump equipment for two Qom communities. Recommendations include: retest water quality at three sites, conduct periodic water system cleaning, and modernize the Junta de Saneamiento system though the addition of water meters and the development of a centralized system.
