Abstract

Escuela Agricola San Francisco is an agriculture and hospitality focused high school in Paraguay with a serious erosion problem that affects its business, Hotel Cerrito. This project proposed possible solutions to help control this erosion. The problem was analyzed, and solutions were discussed using virtual meetings and maps developed by the team. A Spanish-language proposal details these solutions, which include road grading, drainage canals, swales, and gutters. Some future recommendations are to begin implementing these proposed solutions, prioritize maintenance of erosion control infrastructure, and further analyze the causes of erosion at the school.
