Tuesdays 6pm-8pm via Zoom or in OWEN 241
EWB-OSU Cambodia was established in early 2016. Since then, we have sent travel teams to O’rana in 2016, 2017, and 2019 to gather information, establish communication with the locals, and begin the implementation of a water filtration and distribution system.
The people of O’rana currently do not have readily available access to potable water and have to spend 20% of their income on importing unsustainable plastic water bottles. Our goal is to work with the community to provide clean drinking water to all 1000 community members and to further provide the opportunity for business and a source of income within the village.
We are currently working on finalizing the design of the treatment and distribution system and preparing for a remote implementation in December. We will be working with local NGO, Rainwater Cambodia, to build a water tower and implement our treatment system. Next year, we will finalize the treatment process and implement piping to distribute the water to individual households.
