Tapping Into Community Power: Sustainable Engineering for Clean Water

Higuerito is a poor but growing community in Honduras, located about 193km from the capital of Tegucigalpa and about 58km from the urban center of San Pedro Sula. The community was originally located on the other side of the hill from its current location. However, in 1998, hurricane Mitch came through and destroyed the original community, which forced inhabitants to relocate their lives to its current location.
