On January 22nd SaddleBrooke Rotarians visited Nogales, Mexico to do the due diligence required before the School Water Project
gets underway.  Visiting from SaddleBrooke were Mark Miller, Ed Triek, John Ruland and Julia Young.  We teamed up with Nogales
A.C. Rotary Club to visit with the Water Purification Department to discuss testing processes.  This government department has
agreed to do all testing free of charge.  
 
As reported earlier SaddleBrooke Rotary has jointed with Marana, Tubac and Nogales A.C. Rotary Clubs to fund and install water fountains in
22 Nogales schools.  This will provide clean drinking water to almost 25,000 students and school employees.  With matching by Rotary International
and District 5500, the $18,000 raised was increased to $54,000.
 
Mavasa Industrial will fabricate the fountains.  Keeping the testing and manufacturing local will ensure sustainability.  Again, a special thanks to Tom Turriff 
for getting this project underway with his funding and ideas more than 5 years ago.
