EWB-S&T’s Puerto Pando Team traveled to Atahuallani, Bolivia to assess Atahuallani for a new project. Atahuallani is an indigenous, Aymaran community that relies on profits from selling agricultural goods to the capital city of La Paz. Atahuallani is in the Mt. Illimani area of the La Paz department of Bolivia. Atahuallani expressed the need for a water system. Atahuallani receives water from glacial melt from Mt. Illimani, the second tallest mountain in Bolivia. Team members conducted interviews over the current water and living situations and what the community members expected out of a project. They also conducted land surveying of the two canals that run through the community, collected water samples for testing, located current and potential water sources, and measured flow rates.
