Urban Well Project (ENGR 110, Winter 2013)
Students: Hannah Dunrud, Kevin Kozel, Victor O'Brien, Mohini Srivastav
Advisor: Shoba Kirshnan
The project objective was to develop an irrigation system for a community garden that is sustainable and watered by one of the three wells on the San Jose Mission’s property. The students wanted to incorporate a submersible solar powered pump, which will pump water to a water storage tank. Delivery of water from this tank will be timed by a integrated timer. Because of the time constraints, the students were only able to estimate well dimensions, map the property, establish legal parameters, and estimate a budget for future development opportunities of the well.
