Dominican Republic Project Overview

Villa Verde, Dominican Republic

Currently, EWB-TAMU is planning to serve a community in the Dominican Republic. Through the implementation of a water distribution and sanitation system we plan on making a life-changing impact in the future community!

The DR project team focuses on developing a road and drainage system in Villa Verde to prevent structural damage and divert the influx of water that pools and attracts mosquitos with malaria by:

  • Identifying primary flood sources

  • Defining conveyance systems

  • Implementing an improved drainage system along their roads to mitigate flooding and eliminate standing water

Highest Priority Needs

  • Improving road system to make roads passable for personal transport, even during rainy season

    • Walking, bikes, motorcycles, small cars​

  • Develop drainage system to divert standing water to nearby outlet
