Panama Canal Authority
This project was sponsored by the Panama Canal Authority in the Republic of Panama. The Panama Canal Expansion Project includes dredging, which has resulted in increased turbidity in the drinking water source for Barro Colorado Island, in Lake Gatun. This project's goal was to recommend a solution for providing potable water to the island. Through water quality testing and site investigations, alternatives were analyzed based on water quality, quantity, cost, and environmental impact. Importing water from the mainland was recommended.
