ARTCAMP WORKS WITH LOCAL COMMUNITY TO DEVELOP CRITICALLY NEEDED WATER RESOURCES FOR THE VILLAGE OF TECALPULCO GUERRERO
TECALPULCO WATER COMMISSION
DAM ON THE ARROYO
The building of an earth masonry dam in a ravine about 2 kilometers from Tecalpulco
The village has already built the dam I am talking about
The dam was built about two years ago and it serves its purpose.
But Tecalpulco was only able to construct the dam in earthworks.
Because the village did NOT have much money to work with
(funding was from the state government, and Taxco Municipality
1. they cut a way to get into the dam location with heavy equipment
2. they constructed an earthen dam across the ravine about 100 meters in length
This dam captures a LOT of water (the ravine is deep)
Also, the people fear that it might break, endangering
The dam is located about 1000 meters up a ravine
They want to connect the reservoir up the arroyo with the town well

Because water is so scarce, people drink polluted water at times.
The idea behind the construction of the earthworks dam
That mass of water up there also helps raise the water table farther down
There are quite a few good places to make such reservoir dams on that arroyo,
No matter how many dams you build
The present project is to support the dam with a masonry wall,

This is an opportunity to present a real showpiece of a dam;
The idea is to re-enforce with stone, iron, and cement,
The people of Tecalpulco, working with the government,

What they did when they built that earth dam, was stock it with mojarra fish.
