Team 11

Josiah Dobson Brett Nicholson Travis Befus


To develop an elevated water storage and pumping system that can be implemented in rural communities worldwide

Focus on providing a reliable system for two communities in Ecuador through HCJB

Design Norms


-Use only materials local to Ecuador

-Efficient use of all resources


-maintain open communication with our client, HCJB

-Make sure the communities we are serving are aware of developments



-15 family community

-Currently has no water system

-Requires a complete distribution

system, tower and pump design


-25 family community

-Current tower is on the verge of

collapse due to lack of maintenance

and poor material construction

-Tower does not meet capacity




-Tower will be built using steel or wood materials

-Modeling will be conducted using StaadPro and RAM Steel

-Must provide sufficient storage capacity and pressure to meet the demands

-Must withstand the climate elements


-Solar powered pump must meet average daily flow conditions

-Determine optimum number and size of solar panels based on user demand and weather conditions

Distribution System

-A complete distribution system will be design for Washintsa

-Modeling will be conducted using EPANET


Weight and Size Constraints

-Materials not from village must fit in a small aircraft

-Maximum material length is 6 feet

-Cannot exceed 800 pounds per plane load

-largest hard plastic tank that can fit is 145 gallons

Simple Construction

-Constructed without the use of electricity

-Constructed with unskilled labor force


Travel to Ecuador

Team plans to travels to Ecuador in January for 9 days

Visit the two sites to meet with the end users and collect data


-soil conditions

-layout of the village

-Analyze local materials
