Cerrito, a small rural poor community in the Chaco region of Paraguay needs sufficient potable water. The team worked with Fundacion Paraguaya, the Junta de Saneamiento, and the Rosarinos Qom community to study the water systems in Cerrito. Relationship development, data collection, and Google Maps, MATLab Mobile and Microsoft Word contributed to deliverable development. The deliverables were digital maps of the water pipelines systems of the Junta de Saneamiento and Rosarinos Qom community. The team created an administrative plan for the Junta de Saneamiento, and maintenance plan for the Rosarinos Qom. It noted the absence of water meters. Recommendations include map continuation for both the Junta de Saneamiento and Qom communities, and review the Junta’s water meter progress.
