Independence Village

The Independence Village project was adopted in May 2018.  Located in Charlotte Hall, Maryland, this CECorps project is EWB-NOVA’s second domestic project.  The community is comprised of 24 homes that operate on their own water well system.  Since installing the well in 1973, there have been multiple repairs and the pump has been lowered twice.  The community has been maintaining this independent system, and have been working with the SERCAP organization for improving the water distribution with CECorps.

Since adopting this project, our team has completed a site visit to the community and also received approval on the 543 (Project Work Plan) by the CECorps.  Currently, our chapter is working on a community survey to distribute and continuing to research the project.
