Water Demand in Cerro Patacon (Topography) Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Water access and availability is a persistent problem in the Cerro Patacon communities due to exponential population growth and subsequent stresses placed on Panama City's public utility infrastructure. In addition, the Cerro Patacon communities do not have proper water storage capabilities or distribution systems, and with regular water cut-offs twice per week, shortages present a serious problem. In an effort to improve the quality of life in these communities, this project, sponsored by Footprint Possibilities, Inc., aims to generate a topographic study of the area using GPS and GIS systems, with demographic and socio-cultural information supplied by a partner team of WPI students. The combined data will be used to generate a full project proposal for IDAAN.
