Bruce Clemens, an active Rotarian in Guatemala who now lives in Bluffton, spoke to the Bluffton Rotary Club about his current project in San Lucas, Guatemala, through his company Agua del Pueblo, which was formed in 1972. The peoples of San Lucas on the edge of Lake Atitlan have no sewer system and are using polluted waters of the lake as their drinking water source. The project is working to pull water from the deepest area, where the water is not affected by pollution to provide the town with a clean source. Working with Rotary Clubs and Rotary International grants to finance this project and provide education to the people of Guatemala is a major focus for Bruce and his company. Bruce regularly travels to Guatemala with students researching Global Sustainability. For more information contact Bruce at bruce.wayne.clemens@gmail.com or check this link:http://www.aguadelpueblo.org/
