Abstract

The Panama Canal has shaped the global shipping industry since 1914, but recently expanded its operations to respond to increasing world trade. Projects completed in collaboration with the Autoridad del Canal de Panamá over the course of three months in Panama focused on the treatment of potable water originating in the canal and the maintenance of its aging structures following the expansion. Recommendations were provided to aid in preserving the sustainability of the canal.
