Engineers Without Borders - Valparaiso University is a service-based organization consisting of university students committed to partnering with undeveloped communities to design and implement sustainable projects. Guided by faculty and professional mentors, students employ engineering, nursing, business, and science skills to develop solutions that not only solve technical problems but that remain viable after EWB-Valpo has completed the project.

EWB-Valpo is working with the village of La Palma in Nicaragua to help rehabilitate their water distribution system. La Palma is a small village on the east side of Ometepe Island on the base of the volcano Maderas. Most of the people in community are subsistence farmers. This project aims to improve the leaking pipes and the distribution tank that carries spring water to La Palma's residents. Several valves are in need of repair or replacement. Part of our goal of this project is to extend water access to the homes that do not have piped water. Community members believe that water is wasted when the distribution tank overflows at night. The community has also reported that they chlorinate the drinking water in the distribution tank, a practice that EWB-Valpo wants to ensure is disinfecting the water to the highest possible standards.
