Jim Hood, Owner/President of CMIT Solutions of S. Sonoma & NW Marin Co., recently helped Engineers Without Borders (EWB) - San Francisco Professionals Chapter out with an engineering community service project in El Salvador. Communities in the San Juan de Dios area of El Salvador get potable water from a crater lake in an extinct volcano, Laguna Verde. Water pump, power, and control/fail safe systems were designed by Jim and a team of EWB engineers. Jim and his team then worked with the people in San Juan de Dios to implement the project. "After this experience, I will never take water for granted again", said Jim. About EWB-USA: Engineers Without Borders stands 12,000 strong with 350 projects in over 45 developing countries.
