In December 2009, SU-EWB
returned to Thailand to install a drinking water treatment system for the Mae
Nam Khun medical clinic which serves approximately 5000 people. Similar to the dormitory
treatment system from 2007, the final touches were completed in January
2010 by SU alumnus Ryan Daudistel (BSCE ’08) who had volunteered to spend two
months in-country working for Faith International, our 5-year partner in
MNK. The clinic director, Mr. Nakalee
Thitisok was thrilled with the addition and no longer has to boil water for
drinking or food preparation.
Education was another significant focus of the
trip. Faculty advisor Dr. Phillip Thompson worked with a Thai translator,
Adisorn Polchan, to produce water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) posters. Civil
and Environmental Engineering Laboratory Manager Fred Jiencke helped train environmental
engineering students from Chiang Mai University on the biological testing
procedure that will be used for follow-up water quality monitoring. Click here for
brief a slide show of the trip.
