Every season starts with a wish list of projects we would like to accomplish – this season we check marked them all, and then some!
“The fifth site of the season for drilling a well was the community of San
Paquisoy, in the municipality of Mataquescuintla, still in the Jalapa region.
In 2015 the municipality paid a company to drill a well for this community
and an old drilling rig is still sitting on the side of the road with the job
unfinished. The community leaders were quite desperate for a solution to
their water problem since the population is around 3,500 people. The well
was just finished at 310′ and the water yield is over 200 gallons per
minute. The community is in the process of building the tank and finding
financing for a new distribution system.”
