Cornell’s Agua Clara program extends to Nicaragua
Since 2005, AguaClara has built 14 gravity-powered, electricity-free surface water treatment plants in Honduras, with a 15th under construction at Zamorano University in Tegucigalpa. These plants bring safe tap water to approximately 65,000 people in the Central American nation.
Now the Cornell-based program, run almost exclusively by engineering students, is expanding its reach in Latin America. Construction on the 16th AguaClara facility began Aug. 1 for a plant in La Concordia, Nicaragua.
