Proyecto de Graduación (Licenciatura en Ingeniería Agrícola) Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica, Escuela de Ingeniería Agrícola, 2017.
The proposal of a potable water supply system for the towns of San Isidro de Tierra Grande, Isletas y Colinas, located in the Limón province, Guácimo canton and district, was done due to the current system had completed its life cycle, reason why it does not fulfill the inhabitants’ necessities anymore, and it does not have the capacity of increasing the inhabitants amount of usage. That is why there was a proposal with two design options; the first one with 50 mm diameter in the piping and 0,6 km of longitude and 100 mm of distribution and 11 km longitude. The second option, works with the same piping diameter and same longitudes, but it has 75 mm in the distribution diameter. Both options were available for a current population of 382 inhabitants, with a usage of 20 years from now. At this time, the population is going to be around 628 inhabitants and the water flow is going to be 2,29 L per second. To plan these systems and for the design, there were followed the AyA’ technical objectives, as well as the WaterCad software to construct both models.
