The Midwest Assistance Program (MAP) and the Community Engineering Corps (CEC) teamed up to assist the Cedar Gulch II community in October of 2014 with their water quality situation. Read about their struggles, and the solutions implemented on page 17 of the 2017 Q4 Source to Stream publication.
The Community Engineering Corps (CEC) was established in 2014 through an alliance between AWWA, Engineers Without Borders (EWB), and the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). Its mission is to bring water and wastewater technical expertise to underserved communities in the United States. Similar to Engineers Without Borders on a global level, the CEC provides planning and engineering services provided by volunteer engineers free of charge to communities in need. The Midwest Assistance Program is a community-based organization established in 1979 to help communities and tribal nations find solutions to their infrastructure and development needs through research, education, resource management, expertise and technical assistance.
