Update on Project in Morocco – June-August 2011
In June, Fernanda Rojas from Chile, a FogQuest volunteer for many years, was in Morocco to work with Jamilla Bargach and her team from the local NGO Dar Si-Hmad on the construction of fog collectors.
Together with Professor Victoria Marzol, also a long-time FogQuest supporter, a number of large and medium sized fog collectors were built at the site inland from Sidi Ifni.
Early indications are that 12,000 liters of water were collected in August from only 160 m2 of mesh. This is in a very dry part of the year. More information will come in a project update.
