The water system project in El Corozo, Nicaragua is proceeding nearly on schedule. Water was observed at a depth of 615 feet, and drilling has continued so that by June 27th, the depth of the well was 670 feet. The planned completion depth is 800 feet, and it is anticipated that this will be reached in early July. A pumping test is planned, using the final pump (on a generator) to pump 70 gallons per minute for 10 hours. Plans for the pump house, wiring and other well support elements are also proceeding. Once the well is operational, the final project phase will see the installation of retaining tanks, piping from the pump to the retaining tanks, piping from the retaining tanks to all homes, and installing meters at each home. More updates soon!
