The San Pablo de Amali Community
We originally started working with the San Pablo de Amali community to help them construct a vehicular bridge that would replace their previous one which had been washed out in a flow incident. Although, during COVID, the government decided to independently replace the bridge in the community.
We have the opportunity to work with them again to directly address their flooding problems. After the construction of a hydroelectric dam, the area has experienced significant and disastrous flooding that has affected their infrastructure and agriculture. The JHU-EWB Ecuador team will be working with the San Pablo de Amali community to construct a stormwater drainage system that will divert the floodwaters and mitigate the damage experienced by the community during the rainy season.
