Solid Waste Project
SEEHD has collaborated with the Municipality of Tela, Honduras, in addition to the continual support of the Municipality's wastewater treatment system, to develop a closure plan for the solid waste disposal site that serves the city. In January 2009 a report was submitted that recommends the closure of the existing dump and the design of a new sanitary landfill that would be feasible and sustainable for the Municipality to operate and maintain. The rigorous design and implementation process ensures the viability, sustainability, and long-term functionality of the project. Each student is encouraged to become comprehensive, responsible, and accountable in their work.
