International Rural Water Association (IRWA)

2017 | Akelos worked alongside the University (Urbana-Champaign) and Sierra Leone YMCA's to advise on the implementation of a well that served the community of Kenema, Sierra Leone.
el tablon, honduras
2016 - 2017 | The initial design of the spring source, gravity-fed system (with options for the inclusion of pumping) was just completed. The designs will be reviewed by the community of El Tablon and our local partner ADEC. Modifications will then be addressed and reevaluated.
Cerro verde, honduras
2015 - 2016 | The initial design of a surface water, gravity-fed water distribution for the village of Cerro Verde was completed in 2016. The design is under review by the community and local partner ADEC.
2014 - 2015 | This gravity-fed distribution system is completed and currently serving the community of Fatima, which has about 250 residents. Elevation challenges led to a special focus on a pipeline design that could provide water to individual homes at adequate pressures.
Las Queseras, honduras
2013 - 2014 | The design of a gravity-fed distribution system with chlorination was completed, constructed, and is now in use by the approximately 100 residents. A valley with a river lies in the middle of Las Queseras, so special attention was given to a durable bridge crossing. An emphasis was also placed on health education workshops that were done in partnership with ADEC.
