Dominican Republic

Intro: EWB-KC was officially formed as a professional chapter in Aug. 2006 by a group of engineers working in the Kansas City area. The Dominican Republic project was initially introduced to the group by fellow member, Marc Schlebusch. Mr. Schlebusch, in conjunction with local engineer, Danny Perez, conducted an initial water quality survey of drinking water in some bateys (rural villages) surrounding the La Romana area in June 2006. Additionally, Bev Timmons, R.N., of the Dominican Republic Medical Partnership (DRMP) has been, and continues to be instrumental in assisting EWB-KC in developing and implementation of this project. Since 2010 the EWB-KC chapter has been working with the Jean Luc Phanord Foundation school and church, developing a master plan to help improve various infrastructure.  Thus far this has focused on the water system and eletric reliability of the site.  Much of the work from 2010 to 2012 was driven by the student chapter of University of Missouri Kansas City.
