During the September 2019 trip, a unique opportunity was presented to us to help out the National Police with a shallow well at their headquarters and training facility in La Ceiba. Given the depth of the well, the water is non-potable and will be used for showers, toilets, and washing clothes. LWI drilled the hole and provided the casing. Unfortunately, the well was only 13ft. deep and producing only 1 gallon per minute which was not enough to fulfill the intended need.
In April of 2020, a team of local Hondurans led by Rigo Andino and Juan Rosales were able to return to the police headquarters and with a backhoe dig 17ft. deep and install a retention ring underground. The well now produces 50 gallons per minute. The well serves approximately 80 national police officers, command staff and recruit trainees.
