The objective of this community base project is to develop an irrigation system for a community garden that is sustainable and watered by one of the three wells on the Dominican Sisters' Convent property located in Fremont, California. The overall goal of this project is to have a submersible solar powered pump, which will pump water to a tank that will store water and function on a timer. This tank will then deliver water to the community garden as well as other areas on the property. This project focuses on both an environmental and water resources aspects of design work. The design aims to fulfill the customer needs based on budget, functionality and location.
